Bobbi’s Take

I believe we create our own experience, our own results, and our own perspective in this world. What makes RPC CPAs + Consultants unique is that everyone shows up as their true, authentic selves – in all their great and glorious human nature. That creates an atmosphere here that is open and caring, direct and honest, and blessedly free of politics. It isn’t the easy route for an accounting firm to have such an open atmosphere – but it creates passion – passion for the wellbeing of our coworkers, passion for the wellbeing of our clients, and passion for the wellbeing of our communities.
