DPA’s Pawesome Person: February Volunteer Spotlight

“Robert Beard is a perfect match for the financial reporting team at DPA with his background in accounting. He has been a critical part of the behind the scenes work at DPA making sure that our financial data is recorded correctly and reports available for our leadership team and others who need this data. He has been in this role for two years and is efficient and detail-oriented, two qualities that are SO important in finance. Robert is my right hand and I do not know what I would do without him to keep all the finances in order and information ready for our strategic decision making.”, says Emily Johnston, Vice President of Administration.
