Meet Erin, Ascend Bookkeeping Manager
Every few weeks, we feature one of our team members to give you a chance to get to know the people that develop Ascend, balance your books, and support you every day.
This week our subject is Erin Tome, Ascend Bookkeeping Manager. So, let’s get started…
What is your role at Ascend?
I am the North American Bookkeeping Manager for Ascend.
How long have you held this position?
I’ve been with Ascend for nearly 8 years, having started in 2008. During this time I’ve had a few different roles include Support Tech, QuickBooks Specialist, Services Manager and finally over the last two years I’ve served as the Bookkeeping Manger.
What is most rewarding about your job?
I think the most rewarding part of my job has been the relationships that I’ve been able to build with people all over North America. I love looking back on these relationships and noting how we, both the retailers and myself, have all grown over the years. It’s also very awesome to watch a shop go from being in distress to having solid financials that they can trust and use to grow their business.
What are your hobbies?
My hobbies are pretty boring. I’m a home-body at heart. But, while at home I like to read and I’ve been known to binge watch Netflix until I can’t see straight. I’m also a dog lover and take frequent trips to the dog park with my 4-legged babies. Naps are pretty awesome too!
How do you keep a healthy work/life balance?
The issue of work/life balance for me has been a bit difficult to nail down because it’s been in almost constant flow since the day I started. But, when needed, I turn off alerts on my phone and focus on being entirely present and single-minded in my at-home task.
What show are you most likely to binge-watch?
I think I’m most likely to binge-watch a crime drama, no matter what it is. Though, Criminal Minds and Forensic Files have made recent appearances 😉
If you were a bike accessory, what would you be and why?
If I were a bike accessory, I would be a multi-tool (is that considered an accessory?) because, in the Ascend World, I feel like I know a little bit about everything! And maybe a lot about QuickBooks integration.
