Annette Kankiewicz began working at Serotte Law Firm in a dual role as administrative assistant and assistant controller in August 2016 and has now stepped into the role of Controller on a full-time basis. Annette came from a background in Operations Support at HSBC as an Operations Manager and, after taking time off to raise two children, she reentered the workforce in the accounting field, where she worked for several years at Gould & Swanson, CPA, PC in an administrative/support role. Subsequently, she worked at two other accounting firms in the Buffalo area, also in support roles.
Considering her daughter who is involved at a Refugee School in downtown Buffalo as she prepares for a career as an ESL teacher, Annette has come to appreciate the needs of new immigrants to our country through the stories her daughter has shared with her. It has given her a new perspective on immigration, and a desire to help others attain the American Dream.
