Accountfully believes people are greater than numbers, and we are on a mission to prove it.  We enjoy featuring our eclectic employees with a spotlight that shows the world a bit more about them behind the outsourced accounting scenes.

What Katy is singing on Karaoke night:  

Friends in Low Places of course, especially the secret third verse.  I'm a diehard Garth fan.

Previous nicknames:  

The Saunders Family

I've had two in my lifetime. Growing up with four  older brothers, I was quite the Tomboy, so when I was around five, I told everyone my boy name was Rusty (see photo for reference). My brothers have continued calling me this to this day. Fast forward almost 20 years and I developed an alter ego personality that appears after a few too many cocktails. This side of me is lovingly referred to as Pearl, my birthstone.

Which animal Katy would be and why: 

A Bald Eagle, because they're brave, independent, fierce and they can fly!

Katy holds a Bachelor's degree in Journalism from KU

What Katy wants the world to know about her:  

I'm a small town girl that loves to drink wine, play golf and binge-watch Friends reruns. I have a great big family that I love more than anything: four brothers with nine nieces and nephews. I am a University of Kansas alum and a diehard Kansas Jayhawks basketball fan, Rock Chalk!
