Penny’s interest in numbers started with an introduction to bookkeeping as part of her very first job. That interest and plenty of hard work at N.A.I.T. resulted in her achieving Certified Payroll Manager (CPM) status in 2008. She is only a couple of courses away from completing her second N.A.I.T. certificate in Administration-Accounting.
No stranger to the challenges and rewards of building a small business, Penny worked with her husband to grow their oil patch company from a single owner/operator to 28 employees spread out over three branch locations. "I not only looked after all the bookkeeping and administration, I was responsible for hiring and supervising as well." One of the more exciting adventures there was coordinating the start of operations in four Latin American countries.
At Preferred Client Services Group Ltd., Penny is really enjoying all that she learns about new programs and the many types of businesses that PCSG serves. "It’s a good environment to work in. Everyone is easy to get along with. I particularly like the variety of tasks that come across my desk."
Penny believes that her success on the job comes from being very thorough and detail-oriented. "I’m very dedicated - I love to work, and I love to learn new things!" Not only does Penny know her way around a set of numbers, she’s a whiz in the kitchen. One of her family’s favorite dishes - Pigs in a Blanket - is a yummy combination of sausage and Yorkshire pudding. If you ask, she might even share her recipe!
