After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Avila University, Mandy Maples found her passion for numbers. In an accounting role, Mandy discovered her talent and enthusiasm for accounts payable and receivable. Now, with over a decade of experience, Mandy has worked in various industries as an accountant, including manufacturing, architecture and nonprofit organizations — and found her home at Tallgrass Freight.
Mandy first discovered Tallgrass nearly by accident, while driving past the office on her way to dinner with her husband. Her curiosity brought her to check out the Tallgrass website and lo and behold, Tallgrass was looking for someone with her background. And it was a great fit!
In her position as Senior Finance Manager, Mandy plays an integral role in overseeing all aspects of the financial ecosystem at Tallgrass. She spends her day handling everything from payroll and balancing out cash to ensuring all payments are received and being delivered on time and seeking out efficiencies to help improve the accounting process.
“I have worked in all facets of accounting and continue to learn and grow each day,” says Mandy.
“Feeling like I am truly a part of a team and my ideas are valued is truly the greatest feeling in the world.”
Mandy’s favorite thing about Tallgrass? “The culture,” she says. “The culture is fun and the people are close knit. We have a really great team working environment. I wanted to find a place with a friendly environment where everyone works together and that is exactly what I found.”
When Mandy is not analyzing and crunching numbers, she enjoys watching her son race his four-wheeler and her daughter perform in cheer competitions. She also loves indulging in a good mystery or romance novel. Mandy and her husband enjoy spending time with their five kids, exploring the great outdoors and fishing in their pond.
