Abigail Thompson – Receptionist

Abigail is the newest addition to our team at Century Accounting & Financial Services. Most often, she will be the first voice you hear when you call our office and the friendly smile that greets you when you visit us. Before joining our team, she had dedicated the last few years to caring for her aging grandmother. Although that was time she wouldn’t trade, she is very excited (you’ll be able to tell) to be working in an office environment and is already committed to learning everything about Century Accounting and our awesome clients.

Some very interesting facts about Abigail – She plays the trombone and plays in an all-volunteer community band, called Middle River Concert Bank. The group plays for people that can’t get out to hear live music. Abigail also does hoola-hooping, loves to swim and read in her spare time. She can’t wait to meet you!
