Employee Spotlight is a blog series meant to offer an inside look at our company culture and, most importantly, highlight the talented individuals who help make our company so special. From accountants and software implementation specialists to operations, marketing, and HR professionals, get to know the people behind Chazin & Company.
Today, we are getting to know Brenda Gillooly, one of our talented Senior Accountants. Brenda is based out of Tennessee and has been with Chazin & Company since 2021. Let's learn more about her:
1. What's your role at Chazin & Company?
2. What's the most rewarding part about your job?
I love learning about nonprofit accounting and enjoy working with my clients.
3. What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy scrapbooking – my goal is to document our daughter’s life, but I am about 20 years behind!! We also recently moved to the mountains, so I am enjoying hiking.
4. What's your favorite volunteer activity?
I have not found a favorite volunteer activity since we moved to Tennessee; however, when we were in Georgia, I loved volunteering for an organization called Feed My Starving Children. They coordinate the packaging and distribution of food to children worldwide, including special packaging for children who cannot digest regular food.
5. Please share any exciting news or a fun fact about yourself:
We moved from Georgia to the top of the Smokey Mountains at the end of 2019 and built a house during COVID! We moved into our home in February 2021 and now I get to work in front of a large window overlooking the mountains – it’s lovely.
