Inside The Mind Of …

What does “A Brighter Way” means to you? Staying current on new developments and pushing through the challenges that may arise. Staying true to the traditional values and beliefs that have been seemingly slipping away in today’s society. | Describe your work style. Business-like. Always wanting to get better.

What line of The Rea Way describes you the best? Take your work personally.

What do you consider is your “brightest” quality? The ability to play devil’s advocate and the willingness to offer a different perspective.

Just For Fun:

What profession would you choose if you didn’t go into accounting? Professional golf … but not many 10 handicaps play professionally.

What is one trait you possess that you inherited from your mother or father? Financial discipline/frugality.

What is your most prized possession? I’m not very materialistic so it’s hard to decide on something specific. I do have some video tapes of high school basketball games that I hope to never lose. I’ve kept them for more than 20 years with the hope of having my kids watch them – which the recently did, and I didn’t have to force my boys to watch them. … It was their idea … really!
