Project Description

Erin Haas, CPA

Have you ever lived in the bay area?

I was born and raised in Reno/ Carson City, NV. I lived there until I went to college in Colorado Springs, CO. Today, I currently reside in Denver, CO and work remotely for RLA.

What is your fondest childhood memory?

My fondest childhood memory is performing highly practiced gymnastics routines for my family.

What subject(s) did you study at College?

I studied Accounting.

What was your first job?

My first job was working as a front desk associate for 24Hour Fitness.

Who has been the most influential person to you in your career?

At the beginning of my career, my parents were a big influence. They are both accountants and my father is a CPA. They influenced me to become an accountant. Most recently, I’ve been influenced by a CEO that originally started out in accounting. Since working for that individual, my career has been re-inspired to the many directions accounting can take you!

How has your career created value in your life?

My career has giving my family stability and a livelihood. I enjoy my work and the freedom it brings in my personal life.

What do you consider to be the most significant world event that has occurred during your lifetime?

The biggest event in my life was seeing Halley’s Comet. It passes Earth every 75 – 76 years. I saw it when I was 5 years old and it’s the clearest memory of my childhood. I have big plans to watch it a 2nd time with my children and grandchildren at the age of 80!

What is your most memorable travel experience?

My most memorable travel experience was flying in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon with my parents & sister when I was a kid.

What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?

I think one of the funniest things is I always forget my headphones when I travel, then buy new headphones at the airport (the really expensive ones) and now I have dozens of headphones at home. Same thing with curvy neck pillows!

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

My son and daughter are whom I am most proud of, but I can’t take too much credit as they are growing to be wonderful people. I live my best life for them to be a part of and then everyone does better.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

My spare time is spent taking care of my family, chores, spending time in the mountains, skiing, hiking and reading.
If you could possess one super-human power, what would it be? If I could have one super power, it would be to fly. I would love to see the world anytime!
