What is your favorite part about working for New Empire Group?
Honestly I love everyone I work with. My bosses are wonderful and my coworkers are great. It is so nice to work in such a friendly environment. 

How has New Empire Group helped you in your career development?
Well I have certainly learned a whole lot! Prior to working at NEG I was a server at a popular restaurant where I handled the end of night financials and also covered the unit accountants position while she was out on maternity leave. When I started here I was familiar with some accounting procedures but NEG has greatly broadened my accounting knowledge especially since this is a completely different field from a restaurant. I have definitely come a long way from when I first started here part time. I now run the accounts payable side in our accounting department and I truly am loving it. 

What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on?
I would definitely have to say my trip to Italy when I was 16. I went with three of my girlfriends and my one girlfriend’s parents. We were there for two weeks and it was just such an amazing experience. It was so beautiful and we met some incredible people who we still keep in touch with to this day. A few even visited us in New York City over the past couple of years and will be visiting this upcoming summer. 

What is your favorite movie and book?
My favorite movie is tied between Footloose & Dirty Dancing. Deciding which is my favorite book is tough also. The two series that I could not put down were The Hunger Games and The Divergent Series so I will have to call a tie on that too 🙂
