This month’s Employee Spotlight is on Elisa Gover, a Senior Associate in our Business Advisory and Tax Departments.

What year did you join Blackman & Sloop?
I joined Blackman & Sloop in August 2015.

Where did you go to college?
I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Slippery Rock University.

Why did you choose Blackman & Sloop?
I chose Blackman & Sloop because of the family-like atmosphere and because I don’t have to audit anymore. I still get to do all the things I like to do, minus the extensive checklists!

What do you enjoy most about living in The Triangle?
Everyone is friendly and there is so much to do. Activities are close by, but yet we get to live out in the country and enjoy a herd of deer in the backyard – as long as they stay out of my tomatoes!

If you could have lunch with any person living or dead, who would it be and why?
If I could have lunch with one person living or dead, I would choose my Grandpa Miller. So much has changed since he passed away in 2005. He would be so proud that I am a CPA, even though he wouldn’t really understand that there is more to my job than preparing taxes. Grandpa would be tickled to learn about his great-granddaughters and amazed at all the pictures I could share with him that are accessible on my phone.
