Employee Profile – LaQuan

LaQuan Boddie headshotLaQuan has been an important member of the Accounting department at a2b Fulfillment since 2014. We recently sat down to take some time to learn more about what inspires her.

1) What led you into Accounting?
I’ve always worked well with numbers and “Organization” is practically my middle name so those two things go hand-in-hand when it comes to Accounting. Once I took my first Accounting course in college, I immediately knew that this was something that I would enjoy as a career. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else.

2) What is your favorite thing about your career?
The best part about my career is the constant change and the opportunity to learn; whether that be new software or legal guidelines, there’s never a dull moment. Accounting itself is very broad; with Tax, Audit, Forensic, and Financial to name a few. There’s always more to learn!

3) Describe the atmosphere and work culture of a2b Fulfillment.
I’d like to think of us here at a2b Fulfillment as one big Family. I enjoy coming to work every day and the atmosphere is very comfortable and enjoyable. This allows us to work well together.

4) What motivates you to work hard?
My family is the number one motivation in my life – always has been and always will be. I’m the second oldest of my siblings and I would like to set a good example for them so that they can see that hard work does pay off. We hear people use this phrase often, however it’s more meaningful and motivational when we can actually see someone being an example to us.

5) If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
I would love to live anywhere near the Beach. I don’t have a specific place in mind. The waves of the water are calming and peaceful to me. To be able to live somewhere that provides peace of mind visually and emotionally would be ideal.

6) What is something interesting about you that not many people know?
It may be interesting to know that I’m what some may call a “Left Brainy.” I’m a very strategic planner in every aspect of my life. I organize, plan and strategize everything from vacation itineraries to the pens on my desk. Everything has to be written out and in its proper place.

7) What do you love to do outside of work?
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends because time is so precious I wouldn’t have it any other way. The list of activities we may do together are endless but as long as we’re together I am perfectly fine with that.
