An Interview with Donna Edge, CPA
1. What does the title CPA mean to you? To me, being a CPA is about building relationships with my clients and being a resource to you throughout the year, not just at tax time.
2. Why did you become a CPA? When I graduated with my Accounting Degree from Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA) in 1995, I did not plan on going into public accounting. However, that was where the jobs were. I worked for two CPA firms which allowed me to gain valuable tax and bookkeeping experience. When my son was born in 1999 I was very blessed to become a stay at home Mom. My daughter was born a few years later and I continued to be at home. When she started school, I realized I needed something to occupy my time, but I still wanted the freedom/flexibility to be with my family. This led me to start my Bookkeeping business out of my home. About six months into this, I felt the Lord leading me to pursue my CPA license. My first thought was there is no way I’m going to put myself through that again (I had “attempted” it once right after college and said I would “never” do that again!). I knew it would be very time consuming and challenging and on top of that, I had a family to take care of now. However, the Lord changed my heart and therefore my attitude about it, allowing me to see it in a totally different light (it still amazes me how He can do that, if we are just willing to let Him…). By His grace and mercy, lots and lots of prayers, and very supportive family and friends, I was able to pass the exam and earn my license! Having CPA behind my name gives me another opportunity to serve the Lord by helping others through the mine field of personal and business taxes and the uncertainties associated with small business ownership. I truly count it a blessing to be able to help others in whatever capacity the Lord allows.
3. What memberships do you hold? I am a member of the AICPA (American Institute of CPA’s) and the NATP (National Association of Tax Professionals).
4. What do you enjoy doing in your "spare time”? ”? I enjoy spending time with my family, from traveling to new places, to movie night, to sitting around the table and playing dominos and other family games. I also enjoy serving in our local church. I handle the bookkeeping and head up the Ladies Ministry.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
