Roschke & Wall, a small, women-owned firm located in a family-friendly area 30 miles from Los Angeles, understands what it’s like to balance the demands of a busy workload with family obligations. That is why working remotely is a common practice at this tech-savvy firm.
Andrea Roschke, a founding principal of Roschke & Wall, started her career in public accounting in a unique way:
“My first year at college, I got a job as a secretary at a local CPA firm. I was not intending to become an accountant, but, to my surprise, I really liked the work. The managing partner saw that and mentored me. I changed my major. When he retired, we bought his firm.”
Her career track is indicative of the firm’s ability to take advantage of the opportunities that are presented to it, from embracing new technology to spotting partner potential.
“Because we’re small and have a collaborative culture,” she says, “we’re able to talk through any problems in a kind and supportive way. We truly are a team.”
That is a good thing, especially since everyone at the firm has a workload that includes both tax and audit. “It’s nice not to be pigeon-holed,” says Andrea. “It leads to constant learning. Operating this way gives our staff the ability to learn how businesses really work. As a result, we’re able to help our clients in a holistic way because we see all sides of their businesses.”
