Microscoptics- Chief Financial Officer

DeniseMy focus within Microscoptics is behind the scenes support.  Though my “official title” is Chief Financial Officer,  I’m the one who makes deposits, sends invoices, follows up on Jim & Bob’s calls, makes sure schedules don’t conflict with holidays, etc.  I order products and supplies, pay our taxes, process payroll, hire employees, arrange our annual ISO audit, coordinate calendars, hire website designers and all else not covered by Jim & Bob.  If we need a P.O. number, you’ll hear my sweet little voice!

Jim and I met in the Navy at Submarine Base, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  We have been majorly blessed with a son & daughter and their (wonderful!!) spouses, and four grandchildren.  Along the way, I’ve had training and/or courses in accounting, financial planning, was a member of a ladies stock club ($, not cows).  Like most, I have dabbled with differing careers, including as a closer at a title company, an administrative assistant in the auto industry (we’re in Michigan!).  My most rewarding positions have been as a Registered Nurse on a cardiac telemetry unit, in a community urgent care setting, and (#1 favorite) as a hospice nurse.  I’ve done all of the above while supporting Jim through all you’ll see on his bio page.
