Barry Franklin – Certified Public Accountant
Over the course of my career I have found that the prime motivating factor for my work is the relationships I build with my clients. Knowing that I play a role in helping with important things in their lives while getting to know them personally is a reward that keeps me getting out of bed day after day. Even after 29 years, I am still learning new things everyday about my field and the people I help. It’s these reasons that I love what I do.
