ARM is pleased to announce, effective 01/01/2022, Chelsea Williams will be promoted to Shareholder.
For this honor, we asked Chelsea to put down a few words about what this promotion means to her:
It was recently announced I would become a shareholder at ARM CPA as of 1/1/2022. I was asked by a teammate what this moment means to me. I thought to myself, “How could I possibly put into words everything that is going through my head?” The truth is… I can’t. No amount of words could ever fully express the gratitude and appreciation I have for the people at ARM.
Twelve years ago, ARM took a chance on a Capital University intern from Grove City, Ohio. Listed as prior work experiences included only blacktop seal coating, banquet server, and cabinet warehouse manufacturer. Neither the company nor I could have ever predicted I would become a shareholder in the firm one day. This originally was not a realistic goal of mine, but after a few years with the company it was, without a doubt, where I wanted to be. Nothing worth having comes easy or free. But it is a blessing to be able to work with people every day that I consider family.
I wouldn’t be the person, or in the position, I am today without my family. My family has and always will be my #1 priority. I was the lucky girl who got to marry the man she had a crush on in high school. My husband pushes me to be better and expect more out of myself. We have a smart and outgoing daughter who would take on the world at age six if we let her. My parents are amazing. They taught me that hard work, dedication, and a work ethic without excuses will prevail. Additionally, I have had both sides of grandparents, aunts, and uncles who have always been actively involved in my life. My brother grew up having to deal with my competitive nature. We teased each other to no end. However, he knows that he will always be my best friend.
I am extremely grateful for this opportunity. My presence, actions, and attitude will represent the name and brand that the leaders have blazed before me. I am excited for the chance to be a part of the legacy.
