Ashley Jackson, Staff Accountant
Q: What did you do before you started at WBENC?
A: Before joining WBENC I worked as a Finance Specialist for a property management firm here in DC. I had always steered away from recruiters in the past, but am glad I decided to work with one because she introduced me to WBENC.
Q: What keeps you busy at WBENC?
A: As the Staff Accountant, here at WBENC, I work on a variety of tasks finance and accounting related. My days are primarily made up of accounts payable, accounts receivable, month-end close, and account reconciliations to name a few. I am surrounded by numbers day end and day out!
Q: What is your favorite part of working at WBENC?
A: The people! Not only do we have an awesome staff, but the people in our network are amazing. The energy of our staff, the WBEs, and everyone else in our network is nothing short of incredible. Being around such a dynamic group of individuals is very empowering.
Q; Who inspires you?
A: My mom!
Q: What do you do for fun outside of work?
A: Right now, fun consists of catching up on sleep since I take care of my 91-year-old grandmother. Outside of this, I love hanging out with my friends, shopping, traveling, and spending time my spoiled little brat Polo!
