Job Responsibilities as a PBO Staff Accountant

I have six clients currently, one of which is Pro Back Office (I work on the internal team).  I do anything from AR & AP, working on cash flow forecasting and working to compile month-end financials with notes and analysis for the management team.

What Led to Paige to PBO ?

I know Scott Palka and he was generous enough to extend the opportunity to me and help guide me in some of my initial client work.

What is your favorite part or proudest moment about working for PBO?

I enjoy the people I have met at Pro Back Office. The impact they have had on my career and my personal growth is immeasurable. I also enjoy working in Excel and feel like that has contributed a lot to my ability to make clients happy.

Tell us something about your family or yourself that is interesting or would like to share with readers.

I climb 2-3 times a week at an indoor climbing gym.  I can boulder at a V4 level and find climbing to be a great challenge. I enjoy backpacking and have most recently taken small trips to Anza Borrego and Crystal Cove.

I love traveling: my favorite National Park is Zion and I enjoy camping and hiking there.  One of my bucket list items is to do the Zion Narrows Top Down hike through the Virgin River.

I’ve also traveled through Europe; my Dad has passed down a love of international travel to me. My two most recent trips have been to Ecuador, where I stayed in the small town of Guayllabamba. I also took a cruise to Vancouver, Canada with my boyfriend, Brennan.
