Welcome to another SBS staff spotlight. We recently interviewed the newest addition to the SBS Accounting & Advisors‘ family, Becca Paradis. Get to know Becca in this profile of her role at SBS.
SBS: How long have you been at SBS?
Becca: I’ve been working with SBS since January 2019. I started talking with Jonathan late last year about the potential for an advisory practice, and this year we decided to get it started and launched.
SBS: What do you do for the firm?
Becca: I am the advisory practice lead and I’ve been building out the advisory offerings, plans and processes for the launch of these services. I also work directly with clients who sign up for advisory services as their business advisor.
SBS: How has your past experience helped you in your current role?
Becca: I’ve worked for the past 10 years in data analytics, where I took data that alone is difficult to understand, and created reports or visuals that make the information easy to digest and actionable. That is the goal with advisory services with SBS, too: taking financial data and providing new reporting, analyses and projections that will provide insights in a new way to fundamentally change how business owners are running their business. That is, to change in a positive way to be more strategic.
SBS: What is the most satisfying part of your job?
Becca: I’m really enjoying working with such passionate business owners that have big plans and goals, and seeing how the advisory services is helping them reach those goals step by step.
SBS: What takeaways do you hope SBS customers will have from working with you and the new advisory services offering?
Becca: I am very hopeful each customer will have a deeper understanding of their business financials and how best to plan for the future. We want each business to be operating strategically, using concrete data to inform their decisions, and ultimately, to see business growth and increased profitability.
SBS: What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Becca: I have lots of out of work hobbies! I love spending time with my children and family. We like to go hiking on trails in Metro Atlanta, mainly along the Chattahoochee river. I also am an amateur baker, and my kids love helping me bake cookies and cakes … mainly licking the spoon! Other things I try to fit in my busy schedule are reading and sewing.
SBS: Thanks, Becca!
