Our latest team member spotlight shines on Felichia Laws, our Audit and Accounting Manager. She has a Master of Accountancy from Texas State University, enjoys helping Dillon CPAs’ clients, and appreciates the supportive network within her work family on a professional and personal level. Felichia has been married to her husband, Charles, for 12 years and has a daughter, Brianna, and a son, Landon. With kids who are active athletic participants, this is one sports-loving family so much so that Felichia’s dream job for a day would be getting to be the bat girl for the Houston Astros! Felichia is a dependable encourager who is eager to please others, and she draws strength from the support of her family. She shares more about herself in the following responses to our questions. We invite you to get to know Felichia a little better.
