This week we are introducing our accountant, Sean. Check it out.
Hey Now Ya’ll,
My name is Sean Sullivan and I was born and raised in Memphis on a date I care not to disclose. My patron saint is Saint Patrick; I always keep a copy of his blessing in my wallet for good luck and safety. I am one of four kids, two older and one younger. Here is a lovely photo of all of us with our parents. Fun little tidbit, five of us have worked at the Memphis Boat Center at one point or another. The Memphis Boat Center has been a positive aspect of my life from day one, for which I am very grateful.
I grew up playing just about any sport I could get my hands on like basketball, football, soccer, Frisbee, cross-country, and rugby. These and other extracurricular activities kept me busy and out of trouble. Although I played my fair share of sports, athleticism does not run in my genes as demonstrated by the following photo.
My motto was always the ball is more afraid of you then you are of it. Despite all these setbacks I was not deterred from striving for success in sports. I have sense come to terms with my fears and became a stronger and better person because of it.
Moving along, I am finishing up an undergraduate degree at University of Memphis in Accounting and Finance (Lord willing). After which, I will begin working on my CPA, and CFA certifications. While at the University of Memphis, I participated in Student Government Association where I was head of campus safety for a
year. I have been a part of multiple other associations and leadership development courses from Tiger Leadership Institute to Memphis’s many community outreach programs.
Outside of work and education I enjoy a large verity of hobbies. I still play pick up sports and watch all of my favorite teams play as much as possible. This year my sports teams have done well winning the Super Bowl (Patriots), World Series (Red Sox), Premier League (Man. City), made the college football playoffs (Notre Dame), second place in WNCAA March Madness (Notre Dame), and currently competing for the
Stanley Cup (Boston Bruins). I am looking forward to the Women’s World Cup over this summer too. If I am not watching/playing sports, I spend time reading and watching videos on history, philosophy, and science.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to get to know me a little. I look forward to seeing you at Memphis Boat Center.
As always, next week we will be introducing another member of our crew, Hugh Bourland. Stay Tuned.
