Neasie Williams

Neasie has had a variety of positions over the years - Typist, Cashier, Accounting, Teaching, and Programming. After retirement she wanted to keep her mind active and get out of the house during those winter months. The plan was to attend classes in Tax Preparation and work part time. (As we all know, part time is a different animal during Tax Season!) It must have been a good plan as she has been doing this for more than 10 years.
