Favorite part about working at Flagel Huber Flagel:  Independence, flexibility, team effort, family atmosphere, and great clients who really appreciate our help!

Area of expertise at Flagel. What do you help people to do?  Business Valuations, Forensic Accounting and Fraud Analysis.  When a client is going through a divorce, I am a neutral trusted valuator to help them through the difficult process of dividing their assets and income.  Depending on their needs, I help the parties understand the financial process, calculations, valuations, cash flow, and income.

For fraud, I help the client determine the value of the asset or the amount of income/funds that are owed and due/payable by the insurance company to the company owner, avoiding further contact or restitution from the perpetrator.  Then the report and all the supporting documents and schedules may be turned over to the insurance company, prosecutor, police, to pursue the perpetrator.

Favorite way to spend your time:  My granddaughter, Evelynn and I like doing creative crafts like glass blowing, painting pottery, loop yarn afghans, card making and scrap booking.  Evelynn is a wild pottery painter, but we have so much fun! She makes me smile, forget about everything else, and yes, I feed her mini cupcakes and I tell her she is the best part, “the icing on top.”

What is your personal/family life like?  I am happy when the kids are doing well and happy.  My son Matt who is engaged to a wonderful woman, Lydia, is working as a forensic software engineer in Austin, TX – too hot and too far away but he loves it there.  I spend lots of time with My daughter, Dr. Erica and son-in-law massage therapist Drew, and with my grandchild Evelynn (alias Cupcake- she calls me Zippy Mom).  Evelynn and I enjoy “cooking” with play-doh, petting my rabbit Oreo and dachshund Zippy, and swimming at Coney.  My husband Wayne and I enjoy dinner and a movie, relaxing in the recliners at Cobb Theater.  Wayne takes good care of me and always remembers the little things that really count.  I am very blessed!

Fun Fact:  I was going to be a vet but did not want to dissect baby animals, so I switched to accounting.  Sea World was near my home in Tallmadge, near Akron, and I should have been a dolphin trainer.  I swam with the dolphins in Cancun, Mexico and had a blast.

 Favorite movie/band/musician/TV Show? Movie:  Live or Die Hard. Band:  Luke Bryan, Rick Springfield, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean, Christina Aguilera, Maren Morris, Shania Twain, etc. It isn’t the artist but the hit songs that I love. I love music and dancing.  TV Show:  Frasier.
