“Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it.  Autograph your work with excellence.”  Vince Lombardi

Paula D. (Deane) Markle, CPA is a Senior Manager with over 30 years of experience in public accounting, including 6 years at a national firm.  Her focus is income tax preparation (including multi-state returns), tax planning and tax research.  Deane works with individuals, all types of business entities in various industries, estates and trusts.  

I decided when I was eleven years old that I wanted to become a certified public accountant.  When I was in high school, I took an accounting course and I loved it!  I completed the year-end project in one weekend, although we had over a month to do it!  I really love the work; and have not regretted my decision to pursue a career in accounting.

Who is the most influential person in your life and why?
God.  He has opened up many doors for me in all areas of my life.

What is your favorite client experience?
Several years ago, one of my clients mailed a letter to Carl Herbein and told him what a great job I did on a project.  More recently, a new client emailed a few of my superiors that the Herbein tax team did a great job.  Both of these experiences meant so much to me!

What would you like to be remembered for?
I would like to be remembered for being helpful and kind to others.

What would you tell a brand new college graduate trying to get a job in accounting?
I would recommend getting a job with a local or regional firm so that you can try both the audit and accounting work and the tax compliance and consulting work so that you can decide in which area you would like to concentrate.  If you choose to go with a national firm, then you generally must choose which area to pursue from the outset.

What is something not many people know about you?
I taught a class for new hires while at a national firm.  That's how I met my husband!

I enjoy walking.  My husband and I like to go to train, antique and craft shows.  I also like to sew and cross-stitch, although I rarely have time to do these 2 things!

What is your guilty pleasure
Chocolate
