Carm Sacco - Rochester Office

Wow, 2018 went by like a freight train! The office is bustling, in the midst of its busiest time of year. Adjustments to processes are happening intended to improve productivity and keep work flowing. Each year seems to get better, less paper, more collaboration, workflow improvements, all makes a Technology Director like me proud. For the past 19 years it has been my pleasure to participate in supporting such a great firm where learning is more important than making mistakes and action trumps the fear of failure.

Steve Berardi - Rochester Office
Hi, I’m Steve Berardi, a Principal at MMB. I received a call a few weeks ago from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants asking me to serve on their Business Valuations Committee for the upcoming two-year period.
The Business Valuations Committee was set up to be a resource to CPA members and business valuation professionals in private and public practice through educational programs, committee membership participation and networking activities. The committee has quarterly meetings in New York City and is actively involved in proposed updates to the AICPA valuation standards.

Molly Wanzenried - Rochester Office

Welcome to tax season! Though we may not be in the full swing of tax season yet, the office already feels like it is. For the past 2 years I have started my tax season playing in the NYS Society of CPAs indoor volleyball tournament. Now you may think a bunch of accountants playing volleyball, that has to be hilarious to watch. You would be surprised to see the competition there was in this volleyball tournament. Either teams brought in people from outside their firms or accountants are secretly very athletic! I like to think it’s the latter. MMB has enough athletic people to enter 2 team into the tournament. Though we may not have won, we had a lot of fun getting out on the sand.

Amanda Colon- Rochester Office

This month is the start to a lot of things besides the new year for me. This month, I will be taking my first CPA exam which is super nerve racking because I feel like no matter how much you prepare, you still know its going to be hard. Then, there always the thoughts running through your head of "I could've studied more", "I need more time", "The pass rate is only 50%." These are all thoughts that currently run through my head on a daily basis and most likely will continue to do so until I have a license in hand. The month of January is also a month that shows my slow progression of becoming an old woman. My birthday is January 21st and I will be turning 23 (I know so old, right). Since I started in July, this month is also the start of my first career busy season, aside from the governmental busy season that I have been doing since this summer.

Diane Little - Rochester Office

Prior to joining MMB last July, I worked from home for close to 15 years so it is a bit of an understatement when I tell you that getting back into an office setting and having a commute to work was a bit of a culture shock for me. 

Working from home for all of those years allowed me to see my two sons get on the bus every morning and get off the bus every afternoon.  I know how fortunate I was to have those precious moments because they grow up so fast.  They just turned 18 and 20 this month.
