The man who didn’t let a back-breaking accident crush his life is now responsible for Barron County’s day-to-day operations. That means days filled with budgets, research, back-to-back meetings and brain-breaking decisions that he honestly enjoys. Read Jeff's inspiring story here.
I have always liked working with numbers and have a math minor from UW-River Falls. While in high school, I had taken all of the business and accounting classes and really enjoyed them. I am a 1972 graduate of the WITC account clerk program. The way I look at it, my career has come full circle and once again I am studying the accounting profession.
The Accounting program at WITC has meet my expectations and then some. I believe the material has been covered in greater detail than my first time around. My husband and I had a logging business for several years, and I took care of the basic accounting for the business. However, after taking the Accounting program I realized there is so much more to the profession.
The program has given me the necessary tools to feel confident in an accounting position. The two simulated projects we completed (Danielle' Dog Care, and Fitness City) gave a feel for the daily accounting process. Income Tax and Payroll Accounting helped me gain an understanding of how those functions work. Learning QuickBooks and Peachtree exposed me to computerized accounting.
