It’s been a busy Spring with new employees joining Cover & Rossiter and team members celebrating milestone achievements!

Let’s welcome our newest team members to the Client Accounting & Advisory Services department:

We welcomed Bethany Phongsavat to Cover & Rossiter in March 2024 as a Senior Accountant in Client Accounting & Advisory Services. Having been a business owner herself, and also working in a family business, Bethany knows what it takes to streamline processes and manage day-to-day financial operations. Let’s get to know Bethany:

It’s never easy going to school and working a full-time job. Two of our team members did just that. Time to congratulate our recent graduates:

Jazlee Rojas, Staff Accountant

We congratulate Jazlee Rojas on receiving her MBA in Financial Management from Goldey-Beacom College! Jazlee just completed her first tax season at Cover & Rossiter. Next up, after a much-deserved break, is to prepare for the CPA exam.

We congratulate Paris Hickman on earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Goldey-Beacom College! Paris works in the audit department and has been a great addition to the team!

Finally, we celebrated the achievements of employees doing things they love outside of work – and for a good cause too:
