Each month, we feature one of our stellar team members on our blog. Learn more about them and what they do at Singlewire.

How long have you been at Singlewire and what’s your position?

I joined Singlewire in 2015 and my title is Controller.

Please describe what you do at Singlewire.

I am responsible for anything and everything relating to accounting. So, in short, I make sure our employees and vendors are paid accurately and timely. I prepare monthly financial reports and present our results to management. As time allows, I also work with auditors and review sales tax regulations and accounting pronouncements.

What do you like best about working at Singlewire?

Hands down, the people. I have worked at quite a few different organizations over the years and not all of them had ethical, intelligent, hard-working, and good-hearted people like we have at Singlewire. Oh, and we develop and sell a product that saves lives. That’s the icing on the cake.

What have you gained from working at Singlewire?

I have gained a sense of fulfillment over the years. Working with this group of individuals is so much more than a job. Together we are making a difference in the world.

Where do you see Singlewire in the next five years?

Everywhere. No pressure coworkers, but seriously, safety is becoming much more of a priority these days along with the need to communicate effectively and efficiently across various devices. It is difficult to imagine an endeavor that would not benefit from InformaCast.

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?

I love hiking with my husband and our two poodles. In fact, we are planning a trip to the Finger Lakes in New York this summer to celebrate our twenty-year anniversary. This region is known for dog-friendliness with many state parks. Wine is another passion of ours, and its many wineries produce excellent Rieslings and Cabernet Francs.

What’s the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

We have been to quite a few beautiful places over the years and I would experience them all again in a heartbeat. Well, maybe not paddling through the Everglades, just the two of us, where the alligators we encountered were larger than our canoe. I just wasn’t prepared for that. But my husband was successful at saving a pelican who was tangled up in fishing line, so that part was rewarding.

One of my favorite trips was to Ireland. We rented a medieval castle for our base of operations. With my family and my husband’s parents, we experienced many natural and historical sites. We also thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the culture and rubbing elbows with the locals over a pint at various pubs.

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Pasta is heaven. I grow and can a lot of tomatoes and herbs so that I can enjoy making fresh pasta all year. Yum.

One horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

A horse-sized duck is frightening so I’ll go with 100 duck-sized horses.

Where’s your hometown?

I grew up in a small Dutch farming community, Hudsonville, Mich. At that time, and maybe still, it was known as the Salad Bowl City. The town is surrounded by muck fields which grow celery and onions. The town is also known for great ice cream and cream curls.
