FPC Meet and Greet: Erica Laube, Staff Accountant

Tell us about the work you do for Fine Point. 

As a staff accountant at Fine Point Consulting, I am responsible for completing the day-to-day accounts receivable and accounts payable tasks for our clients. I also get to run payroll for our clients and provide them accounting support on a daily level as well as support the monthly reporting for our clients.

Tell us about your educational and professional background before you arrived at FPC. 

Before I joined FPC, I received my Bachelor of Science degree for a double major in Accounting and Business Administration from Rockford University in May 2020. I am currently in the process of obtaining my Master of Business Administration degree from Rockford University as well.

What do you like most about working at Fine Point? 

The thing I like most about working at Fine Point would really be the people. From coworkers to clients, everyone I have had the chance to work with have been fantastic and welcoming to me. I could not have asked for a more inviting workplace than we have here at FPC; it makes learning and growing in this profession easy and fun!

Is there a skill you’re learning or have learned since coming to FPC that you’re particularly excited about? 

I am really excited that I have gotten the chance to learn how to process payroll for our clients. Payroll is something we never covered in classes I took, so it has been great to learn the steps of processing our client’s payroll.

One thing others might be surprised to learn about you. 

People may be surprised to learn that I grew up on a 400-acre farm in rural Illinois and raised a large variety of animals from cows and horses to chickens, ducks, and turkeys. Moving to Madison has been a huge adjustment for me because growing up the closest neighbor to me was over half a mile away.

When you’re not working at FPC you….. 

When not working at FPC, I like painting and gardening at home or hiking at Devil’s Lake State Park. I’ve tried keeping a very tiny garden on my apartment patio this summer to bring a little bit of home into the city.
