What do you remember about your first day with UGOC?
My first day with UGOC was a full day of Yardi training. The second day was another full day of Yardi training. Third day…Yardi training as well.
Are you in the same role? What has changed about your role?
No, I am not in the same role. When I first joined United Group, I started as a staff accountant. My responsibilities included accounts payable and various accounting projects assigned to me. I was then promoted to property accountant role.
Tell us what an average day at the office looks like:
There is no ‘typical’ day at office. One day I might be busy replying to emails and answering questions from owner/sites/team members. The next day I could be busy with requests for financial analyses.
Tell us one of your favorite early memories from your office:
I have a lot of lovely memories from my office, and it’s hard to decide on just one: Two Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups from Graham every time I visited his office; ATeam Christmas Ornaments from Stephanie; when I made mistakes, Nicole telling me “No worries, everything can be fixed”; when I had no confidence on my transition to property accountant role, Tracey showed her faith and supported me, letting me know she would be always there to offer help.
What do you love most about United Group?
What I love most about the United Group is that it makes me feel like a valued family member instead of an employee. People take note when you work and hard and push yourself, and that behavior is recognized and rewarded. There are always endless opportunities for growth and advancement for those who aim to achieve more.
What advice do you want to give yourself now, after working for the United Group for the past five years?
Don’t be afraid to get outside your comfort zone. You’re surrounded by colleagues who will support you through each new challenge. Help is always just around the corner!
