Meet Firm Administrator, Laurie Patterson
October 30, 2019
We invite you to get to know Mattison Yoder's Firm Administrator, Laurie Patterson. Learn what Laurie does on and off the clock, and how she contributes to making our firm great!
As Firm Administrator, what do you do for Mattison Yoder?
In addition to developing internal processes and overseeing operations and work-flow of our business clients, I review client business returns and assist with individual income tax returns.
What do you like best about working for Mattison Yoder?
The people are wonderful, and I love that we work together as a team, laugh a lot, and can lean on one another when we struggle in our personal lives.
What is your favorite vacation destination?
Alaska...the summers offer cool and comfortable weather. The mountains and waterfalls are breathtaking and it's incredible to see all the wildlife in their natural habitat.
If you could do another job just (for just one day), what would it be?
I would be a race car driver. As a child, I liked to go to Nascar races and watch the drivers race around the track. I think it would be exhilarating (for a day).
What are the top three highlights of your life to date?
The day I married my husband 31 years ago, giving birth to my children (triplets) who are now 24 years old, and watching my children develop into successful, kindhearted adults.
People would be surprised to know:
In my younger years, I enjoyed boating and water skiing, I even learned to bare foot, which was scary but fun until you catch a toe and crash!
What is one thing on your bucket list?
Now that my husband and I are pretty much "empty nesters", we are looking forward to traveling overseas and experiencing different cultures and taking in the sights!
