As an accountant, work life can become pretty predictable and if I’m not careful, boring. While I love working with numbers, I need meaning behind those numbers to feel fulfilled. Working at Sample Supports fills both of these needs - I’m never bored and am happy to be part of a company that provides meaningful services to people.
One of my favorite tasks is to prepare payroll for clients. I absolutely love the fact that we have helped someone to participate in the work community, however small their part may be, and show them that everyone deserves to be in the community. Everyone, regardless of skill level, has a part to play and can be rewarded for their contribution.
One evening at the Rec Center, I ran into one of our clients. He lit up and gave me a big high-five. Me! The bean counter in the back room! Yep - we all have a part to play - and it's a privilege to contribute to a greater good.
