Shannon Vary

Accounting Assistant

I learned from my father, an accountant, the complexities of processing large amounts of data and fell in love with accounting when I was introduced to tax accounting while in high school. My early experiences led me to pursue a degree in Accounting from Capella University, and I hope to continue my education at the master’s level and secure a CPA license in Virginia. As I grow in the profession, I’m seeking to understand challenging variances and engagements. As an Accounting Assistant, I thrive when using my problem-solving skills. I am most drawn to the field in analyzing and understanding data which is where my skills are most refined. I aspire to grow more as a professional and am always up for any challenge to learn more in this growing field.
