The Team Behind Your Books

The Team Behind Your Books

Last month you met the team behind your tax return.  And while our tax team also handles bookkeeping, we’re giving them some much deserved time off!  So today, meet the rest of our accountants and the team behind your books: Mandy, Susan, Kat, Katie, and Irene!

Mandy Rodenburg, Accounting Manager

What are your home office necessities?

Coffee and a quiet space

What do you do with your time when you are not working?

Dance!  Haha just kidding, although we do dance, we are mostly being entertained by our kids.

Your go-to meal or take out food choice for you and your family?

Sushi, ramen, or pizza

What TV show are you currently binge watching?

Schitt’s Creek

 

Susan Heidenreich, Accountant

What are your home office necessities?

A (very large) cup of coffee and TOTAL silence.

What do you do with your time when you are not working?

During the week I’m running my daughters to activities and sports practices.  On the weekends we like to hang out with friends by the pool while listening to music and having a beer.

Your go-to meal or take out food choice for you and your family?

Torchy’s Tacos!  It’s probably been our best find since moving to Dallas.  My girls ask for it at least once a week!

What TV show are you currently binge watching?

I started watching Mad Men (I know, that’s so old!) but then I stopped watching it.  I need new suggestions for something to binge!

 

Ekaterina “Kat” Angert, Accountant

What are your home office necessities?  

Tea, a second monitor, and great internet.

What do you do with your time when you are not working?

I breed kittens which involves feeding, cleaning, playing, taking pictures, and creating posts.  When I’m not taking care of the cats, I take care of my kiddos and their homework and try to watch a movie while folding laundry or washing dishes.

Your go-to meal or take out food choice for you and your family?

Sushi is my absolute favorite, with pizza in second for the kiddos. Neither me nor my husband are picky – we eat what I have time to cook and try to be as healthy as we can be.  We have lots of smoothies and we grill in the summertime.

What TV show are you currently binge watching?

I don’t watch TV but I do watch YouTube or Amazon Prime when time permits (which is very rare) and I mostly watch Russian programs or videos.  I love horror, detective, mystic or historic series or movies, again, mostly European or Russian kind.

 

Katie Milton, Accountant

What are your home office necessities?  

I like quiet.  It’s the only time of the day when no one else is in the house.  I also can’t survive without Metric coffee.

What do you do with your time when you are not working?

Workout, play tennis, and be an uber driver for my kids.

Your go-to meal or take out food choice for you and your family?

Hot Woks which is just down the block.

What TV show are you currently binge watching?

I’m all caught up with Bravo – I need some suggestions!

 

Irene Nelson

Irene Nelson, Accountant

What are your home office necessities?

Lemon water, salt-n-vinegar almonds (so yummy!), spearmint gum and a sweater.  I’m always cold!

What do you do with your time when you are not working?

My non working hours are spent exercising, taking photos, and spending time with my family. On Sundays we often cook a big family dinner together or watch a movie during “family laundry folding” time.

Your go-to meal or take out food choice for you and your family?

Our go-to family meal is grilled chicken with pesto sauce and noodles or zoodles but for take out we love Jersey Mikes or Woodgrain Pizza (a local Neapolitan pizzeria).

What TV show are you currently binge watching?

I’m addicted to The Crown on Netflix. If you hear me talking with an English accent that’s why.

About Lindsay Pastorino

Being organized and a bit of a clean freak, Lindsay's idea of a good time is cleaning out her closets.  We wouldn't even put it past her to “Danny Tanner it” and vacuum her vacuum from time to time!  These traits, however, make her the perfect person for the project manager role.  When she's not keeping things organized, Lindsay enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter.  Lindsay holds degrees from both Illinois State University and Loyola University-Chicago.
