Staff Accountant 

The Maggie Simpson Moment

It was wholly unexpected how fast Samantha grew from scanning returns to filing returns and now assisting with quarterly bookkeeping during the peak 2021 tax season. She calls this the Maggie Simpson Moment. You know Maggie Simpson, right; Maggie is that lovable baby character from the Simpson family. At most times, she is quiet and never says a word, but she surprises everyone with moments of brilliance. That character is Samantha. It was a combination of her diligence and adept talent that wooed our team.

Background

Samantha brings a strong passion for learning and an eager drive for growth. As a professional staff accountant and extraordinary student, she combines her bolt from the blue skills and hands-on experience to take on the world that is accounting.

 

She knew accounting was the right fit for her when she noticed a Schedule F she once created for a client pop up when preparing taxes. Seeing her work come full circle for a client was gratifying. She is currently completing an auditing internship in, Summer of 2021. Samantha’s expected graduation date from Fresno State is May 2022 with a degree in Business Administration with an option in Accountancy. Her mark doesn’t stop there; Samantha is also on track to take the CPA exam after graduation. Samantha is a fast learner and is on the right path to achieving her goal of becoming a CPA.

 

She is an avid virtual member of Beta Alpha Psi at Fresno State and their community in Sam's meantime. She also joins The Garabedian Group in their efforts to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities Of The Central Valley.

Fun Fact

If I could relate to a Simpson character, it would definitely be Maggie Simpson. She is quiet and doesn’t speak, but she is observant and wildly intelligent. She will do things that other characters didn’t know she was capable of doing.

“Two factors stood out to me about The Garabedian Group, their work environment and their relationship with clients. It’s something I have never seen before. Everyone works collaboratively together, and they truly care about their clients. They take the time to personally know their client’s situation to find solutions to help them and their businesses succeed. That’s why I want to be a part of The Garabedian Group’s journey. They also have some inspiring CPAs I can learn so much from!”
