Property Accountant, Corporate
Our September Employee Spotlight is on Dena Fischer, Property Accountant, who is retiring at the end of the month. Always positive, friendly and approachable as well as a crackerjack accountant, Dena will be greatly missed by everyone at LHP, especially her colleagues in the corporate office.
“Dena has been one of the most reliable employees we’ve had in the accounting department since the inception of LHP,” says Carey Parker, CEO. “ She is patient and has a heart of gold. We wish her the best of luck in her retirement.”
Accountants new to the department learn from Dena so they can learn from the best, says Kelly Kirby, Vice President of Finance. “We like to have Dena mentor new property accountants so they can pick up on her attention to detail and see how she lays out her work plan to always beat the deadlines,” Kelly explains.
“She’s a great accountant and an even better person,” Kelly adds. “She has the peppy and positive attitude that everyone wants to be around. She is easy to talk to, reliable, and trustworthy. I am not certain how we will function without her, but we are so happy for Dena getting to enjoy her retirement!”
Senior Corporate Accountant Katie Pierce says that Dena took her under her wing when she first started and has always helped her. Dena also got Katie and others hooked on birthday lunches at Soccer Taco. “It’s been such a pleasure working with her and she will be missed!” says Katie.
Dena is a popular go-to for Monday morning quarterbacking because of her love and knowledge of all sports, especially the University of Tennessee Lady Vols. She’s competed in the company’s annual March Madness bracket challenge every year which she won in 2017, says Recruiter Brandon Gann, adding he always looks forward to talking Tennessee sports with Dena.
“I’ve always enjoyed Dena’s positive spirit and demeanor,” he says. “She’s such a pleasure to talk to and interact with in the office.”
When February 14 rolls around, Dena’s presence in the office definitely will be missed by everyone. Every Valentine’s Day, Dena’s husband has sent a Barbershop quartet to the office to serenade her with love songs. Dena doesn’t mind when the entire office gathers around to enjoy the performance with her. She’s happy to share the love.
LHP is pleased to shine the spotlight on Dena Fischer. Congratulations on a long, successful career and we wish you much happiness in this new chapter of your life.
