Laura Reeb, Accounting Specialist

Where did you work before Capital Business Systems?

Prior to coming to Capital Business Systems, I was employed for about a year and a half as an accountant at a HealthWorks a non-profit healthcare center. Prior to that I was the Director of Accounting at the Cheyenne based regional airline Great Lakes Aviation. I was employed with them for 11 years prior to their closure.

What is the favorite part about working for Capital?

Thus far in my first year working at Capital I have enjoyed the challenge of learning a new industry and applying my accounting skills to improve the reconciliation processes.

If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?

Own a craft store…all my life I have enjoyed doing crafts and always thought I’d own a craft supply/consignment store.

What do you like to do when you’re not at the office?

I have a lot of interests….crafts, reading, puzzles in the winter and gardening, camping & fishing in the summer. My most special thing to do during COVID-19 is being able to visit my 88-year-old mother once a week, through the window via a tele-call, at her long-term healthcare center.

Fill in the blank: I once met….

Mac Davis….lol! That dates me but I thought going to a Las Vegas show was the highlight of my life when I traveled as a teen with the Casper Troopers, a Wyoming Drum & Bugle Corp that traveled across the US competing each summer.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

New Smyrna Beach, FL. Visiting this beach brings me great peace as I enjoy the family-oriented area, small shops, walks for miles along the beach and pure relaxation while I am there.

What are the three words that best describe you?

Compassionate, loyal, dedicated.

How do you define success?

My personal success is defined as raising my two sons from an early age as a single parent to being the young men they are today while maintaining a successful career.

My professional success is defined as setting goals and making lists, and along the way making any improvements to the processes, to get to the end result in a timely, accurate and possibly more efficient manner.

What advice would you give others in your profession?

I would advise others in my profession to keep open communication, follow through with tasks/goals, mentor and be positive. A team is only as good as the weakest link and each of these lends to a successful team.
