Amelia works as a staff accountant on one of the client service teams at Fortiviti. Her love for small business and entrepreneurship began with the inception of her fiancé’s business, Countryside Lawn & Landscape, LLC. In helping to run the company, Amelia wore many hats: business owner, bookkeeper, laborer, marketing consultant and was a large contributor to what the company is today. While completing her undergraduate degree, Amelia accepted a staff accountant position for Poole Fire Protection, a woman-owned small business. She worked closely with the owner and became knowledgeable of the ins and outs of operating a small business. Staying on after graduation, Amelia continued to gain experience working in multiple sectors, including commercial and government. Looking for an opportunity to further her development of small business accounting, she joined Fortiviti in early 2014. Since she has always worked in a small business environment, Amelia appreciates the everyday needs and struggles our clients face and uses her experience to help support the success and growth of their businesses.
Amelia holds an accounting degree from Baker University. She is originally from Spring Hill and now resides in rural Fontana, KS with her fiancé Jake. They are planning a fall 2015 wedding. Amelia enjoys working outdoors and helping to manage Jake’s lawn and landscape business. In her spare time, she can also be found hunting, fishing or sitting on the back porch with her head in a book.
