Teryn Grater is an avid world traveler, favoring places best for hiking, kayaking, and other activities of the like. Her travels make for great conversations at ATKG, where she is currently a partner.
In this episode, Taryn and I talk about her vision of an ideal workplace and the experiences she went through to determine that vision. Taryn recognizes the cause of a lacking talent pool in the accounting industry to be the typical overworking climate it provides.
Teryn joined ATKG in 2001 to help out on projects while Melanie had her twin boys. What started out as a favor from one CPA friend to another turned into Teryn becoming a partner in 2003, which was likely, Melanie’s master plan the whole time. Of course, Teryn’s quite strategic herself, so it was very likely part of her master plan as well!
