    Accounts Payable Specialist, Finance

    Miami, FL

What’s your work-life philosophy?
Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today. This mindset helps me be up to date with my everyday life at work and at home.

What do you like best about working at UDT?
How family oriented UDT is and how much they care about their employees and their families.

How do you make life easier for UDT employees?
I always look at the positive side of any problem. So when my co-workers look stressed, I remind them if it can be fixed, it was never a problem. I almost always have a solution to their problem or an answer to their question.

How does your role play into the finance department?
Finance pays our vendors so we can place orders. Once we place orders, our customers get their orders and our receiving and billing team can bill them, allowing for UDT to be paid for services. So, everyone’s role is important and keeps UDT functioning!

What innovative ways are you implementing to continue streamlining finance?
More account reconciliations per month and better communication with my vendors, finance and warehouse team.

What is the best professional advice you would give?
Take everything one day at a time but give the best of you every day. Be kind to the people around you since they spend more time with you than our own families. Be strong, stand tall, and never give up. At the end of the day, work will always be there but you might not be.

People would be surprised if they knew you…
Enjoy riding motorcycles.

What do you enjoy doing in your time off?
I love spending time with my family (kids, husband, parents, brothers, and my animals). I enjoy every second with my kids; traveling, teaching them new things, and seeing the satisfaction and amazingness in their face when they discover something new.
