Auditors. You know their reputation. By-the-book. Fastidious. Humorless. The kind of people who eat cottage cheese on their cheat day.
Why would we allow one of these under our roof—as an Ashton Tiffany employee, no less? In part because we take laws, regulations, and internal controls seriously. We’re not trying to walk any lines. We’re trying to stay well inside them, out of respect for both our clients and our core values. Hiring a full-time, internal auditor is a demonstration of conviction.
Plus, our internal auditor is awesome. Her name is Nicole Koenes (pronounced “KOOnis”). She hates cottage cheese. You know what she likes? Spaghetti. And camping. And mermaids. And volleyball. And chick flicks. And the rigorous separation of personal and business expenses. And Jamaica. And yoga.
Yes, she’s our kind of auditor, and she better be, because she’s auditing for us now.
