I grew up thinking I was going to be a counselor because I loved the thought of helping others. But, as life often does, my plans changed and I was very blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for 18 years raising 6 kids. I had small jobs throughout that time and eventually started a masonry business with my husband where I taught myself how to do the books, taxes and payroll. I have always been up for a challenge, if you can’t tell.
As my children grew up, I decided to use my new-found skills outside of the home. Some may think I got my work experience from helping with our masonry business, but my true education came from organizing the schedules of all my children who range in age from 23 to 11-year-old twins. Shuffling them around, managing schedules, making sure everyone was happy and teaching them respect and how to treat others regardless of how they are treated, prepared me for working with various businesses and people.
At Rotz & Stonesifer, I started by helping out during tax season at the front desk. After the 3rd season I become a permanent employee in the payroll department. I enjoy working with my clients, getting to know them and helping them with their needs. I have great co-workers and really appreciate how much family means to Rotz & Stonesifer.
When I’m not at work I am running the masonry business or I can be found transporting kids to their various sports events and enjoying family activities such as fishing, kayaking and 4-wheeling. I go back to my roots, wanting to help the people around me; my joy for giving back to my community came from my faith in Jesus. It’s my passion to encourage people and know that they are important.
I have been a member of most of my kid’s sport boosters. Right now I am a member of the high school football booster and in charge of community outreach. It is important to me to teach kids to do things for other people and give back to our community as well. This is a huge passion of mine. They also participate in The Chambersburg Project, Project Big Love, we recently organized a toy drive called Christmas at the Stadium and in the past we’ve participated in Kindness Day.
