“Bland’s mission statement aligns with my best business practice concepts. If I can find or be the solution, then I will do so. It’s the right thing to do. My goal in life is to be the best person I can be in business and in life generally.”
If I set my mind to something I can do it.

|I am not in accounting however when I originally started coding, I wanted to learn a skill I could do from home as I live rural. As I learned I wanted to learn more. Initially I started out in DoD services. I liked that I was beneficial in ensuring the providers got paid for the services they did.
