When businesses sign with Wheelhouse Creative, they expect – and receive – many things, from creativity, digital expertise, the best advertising and rates, etc.
Yet a hidden benefit is the competence and doggedness of our accountant to make sure the numbers are spot on for our clients. She is relentless.
She is Ohio Valley native Robin Meyers.
If you check Robin’s background, you’ll be impressed. She earned her B.S. in Accounting from West Liberty University in 1996. In 2004, she continued her thirst for education while earning an AAS from Belmont College in Mental Health, specializing in Child Development. In 2017, she added a Master of Professional Studies in Organizational Leadership from West Liberty University. She’s put it all to good use – especially regarding bookkeeping.
“I’ve been in the financial world for over 30 years,” Robin said. “I’ve worked in the areas of auditing, tax, and not-for-profit. I’ve been in retail, gas & oil, and advertising, to name a few environments.”
She’s beloved both at and outside work. A Moundsville native, she’s known for volunteering.
“I’ve been volunteering on and off for years,” Robin said. “Now that I’m back in the Valley, I’m getting more and more involved in the community. And, oh, the stories I could tell about volunteering! There are tons that go from heartwarming to tearful to even funny.
“I will say, though, my favorite activity was the Miracle League of the Ohio Valley. There’s no better feeling than seeing the smiles on the players’ faces as they participate in America’s favorite pastime, baseball!”
Robin caught the numbers bug early in life.
“I had a neighbor when I was in grade school that was an accountant and I thought it sounded interesting,” she said. “In high school, I had the opportunity to take business courses and the concepts and basis of the financial world made sense as opposed to the core classes. I struggled in English, science, and social studies. Although I made good grades, I had to put more effort into those classes.”
The creative side of Wheelhouse handles the right-brained stuff. Robin is the left-brained whiz that manages the receivables, payables, cash flow and payroll.
“I’ve been called a workaholic,” Robin said. “I don’t necessarily see it that way. I was just raised to have a strong work ethic, attending school while working and raising a family. I attribute my work ethic to my parents and their support and even the occasional ‘kick in the butt’ I needed.”
Robin’s vast experience has shaped her into a top-flight bookkeeper, but also a communicator.
“I believe having a diverse background allows me a better understanding of the financial needs of our customers,” she said. “It assists in working out budgetary needs and explaining the methods in which some medias charge for advertising. This position requires you to adapt quickly to the way changes in advertising trends effect our customers’ needs.”
Robin Meyers is at home now – both at Wheelhouse Creative and the Ohio Valley.
“I returned to the Ohio Valley because this is and always will be home,” she said. “You know that feeling when you know you’re where you belong? I got that feeling when I was away and would come to visit friends and family.”
“Now, I’m back home.”
