Meet Emily Diezemann
How did you come to work at SC?
My Mom was Michael Callahan’s teacher in high school. When I was looking for an internship my freshman year of college, my mom suggested reaching out to Mike. After completing that internship, I knew I wanted to start my career at Sachetta Callahan. I give all the credit to my Mom!
What’s your favorite thing about working at the firm?
My favorite thing about working at the firm is the culture and the sharing of knowledge. Everyday is a new learning experience. We have the most friendly and cooperative team.
What’s special about your SC clients?
We work with clients who align with our company culture. Everyone is on the same page about how we can work together and help them achieve their goals.
What’s your life like outside the office?
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. Volleyball is also a huge part of my life. I played Division III volleyball at Endicott college. I enjoy traveling.. My family every summer plans vacations based on Major League Baseball. So far I have been to over half of the stadiums. We are planning to get to them all!
Do you have a work/life philosophy?
My work/life philosophy is to take one day at a time. I have come to realize throughout my career and life, planning ahead sometimes doesn’t go as planned. Life is full of curveballs and you need to be flexible.
Share a piece of professional advice most people could benefit from?
Never be afraid to ask questions! You will learn a lot and avoid mistakes.
How did you end up in the field?
My Mom! I thought I wanted to be a teacher, but she actually encouraged me to do something different, and I loved math. I took my first accounting class in high school and realized this was the career for me.
What would you do if you didn’t do this?
There are two other professions I feel I would be successful at if I did not work in the accounting field. The first is math teacher. When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher. Math was my favorite subject and one I succeeded in. The second is something within culinary – maybe a baker or chef.
If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would you choose?
My Nana. She passed away when I was 2 ½. I’m told we had an inseperable bond, but I don’t remember. I would have liked to know her better.
