Mekele (pronounced like Michelle, but with a K) has been in the accounting field since her junior year of high school. She has an associate’s in accounting, a bachelor’s in marketing, and a master’s in human resources management. Additionally, she holds professional certifications in HRM. Mekele has worked most of her career in various industries in corporate America, but it never gave her the same satisfaction as working with small business owners; everyday is something new and challenging. She is a self-described nerd and loves all things analytical, but she is not your stereotypical accountant profile and is anything but boring; she’s a great storyteller, too!
Away from work, she has volunteered her time in many capacities within her community, including holding a position as a commissioner on the City of Chandler’s Housing and Human Services Committee. She also enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with her husband, son and dog.
