Get to Know Debbie Brady, Tax Manager
 
This month we spotlight a Tax Manager on our team, Debbie Brady. Debbie has been with Orcutt for 12 years, and she has more than 20 years of experience in taxes and accounting—in both the private and public sector.
What do you enjoy about your role?  I enjoy helping clients understand how taxes impact their personal finances and their businesses.

So many people do not understand accounting, taxes, or payroll, yet they all affect us every day. I enjoy helping add some clarity to those areas.
  
What was your first job?  I worked at Wendy’s on Beechmont Avenue in Amelia, which is now a closed location.
 
What’s something clients might be surprised to learn about you?  I have never lived more than 20 miles from where I live right now.
How do you spend time outside of work? With my family. I love to boat and to read. There is nothing more relaxing than being on the water and reading a good book!
 
What inspires you? My friend Laura Baker. She is such a giving person and shares her time, resources, and love unconditionally with everyone she meets. 
 
Who is someone you look up to? My parents. They are both gone now, but they were such great role models. They were far from perfect, but their love for their families was perfect. 
   
What’s a book you’d recommend? Final Gifts . But you name it and I’ve probably read it. I read about 25 books a year.
 
What’s one of your proudest moments?  In May of this year, my oldest graduated from College with a degree in Biology and minors in Molecular Biology and Italian. Seeing my daughter achieve her goals was such an overwhelming moment of pride for me.  
 
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you want to have with you? Water, food and shelter. What can I say, I’m practical.
Orcutt Team Members Take Special Mission Trip to Arizona

Did you know that several members of the Orcutt team went to Arizona with Lifeline Christian Mission ?
Lifeline’s vision is to spiritually and physically minister to people around the world.

Lifeline ministers to thousands in Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, Cuba and Canada—and provides many volunteer opportunities right here in the United States. 
 
Orcutt team member Sherry Robinson gives the update on the mission trip the team took at the beginning of June:
 
“A small group of Orcutt team members (Sherry Robinson, Linda Mullucey, Twyla Bradshaw, Jeanette McGee, Joy Delbusso and Debbie Brady) went to Winslow Arizona (yes we stood on the corner!) with Lifeline Missions to serve the Red Sands Christian School run by Lifeline. 
We had an action-packed week where we worked on demolition of a recently acquired building to house the growing school.

There was a time crunch in getting this old Amory building ready for the 2018/2019 school year as the first day of school was at the start of this month! 
 
The Orcutt team—the employees and a few of our kids—worked with a group from Florida, tearing down ceilings, removing pipes, light fixtures, old tile, toilets, etc. getting ready for new windows, walls and ceilings to serve the staff and students of Red Sands.
 
In our spare time, we also worked with a Ministry (The Least of These) that ministers to the Navajo and other people on the streets in Winslow. 

We took lunches, water and visited with people we found on the streets, talked with them, hugged them, and prayed. 
On one of our last days there, we served lunch at the school to people from the street and gave out backpacks with various supplies.
 
Our week was hot, dry, and filled with hard work, but we spent it meeting and working with wonderful people, and most importantly, serving and loving God every minute.

It was truly an awesome experience that makes me excited for next year and my next mission trip.”
