Sherri L. Roberts

Tax Analyst, Finance

 

In one sentence, describe what you do all day: Provide tax support to internal and external clients.

How my job helps BBRS clients succeed: I enable clients to meet their tax obligations and reduce cost to their clients thru accurate tax reporting. 

Education/work experience: Worked for the Internal Revenue Services for 14 years in various positions: secretary, tax fraud investigator, tax specialist (teaching foreign tax law) and finally as a taxpayer services specialist. I’ve trained at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and various tax training programs.

More recently, I was the corporate tax accountant at Chugach Alaska Corporation.

Hobbies: Cooking, sewing, traveling, riding motorcycles and ATVs, and target practice.

Family: My husband and Juneau, a miniature Schnauzer. Also, my son, stepsons, a granddaughter, grandniece, grandnephew and many bonus children.

Hometown: I was born in Lebanon, Ore., but my father was in construction and we moved often. I call Alaska my hometown. 

Famous quote to live by: “Do unto other as you would have them do unto you.” 

How I made my first dollar:  Playing waitress when I was 6.

Favorite lunch spot: Crostini Café in Anchorage. I love the Chicken Asian Salad.

Something most people don’t know about me: I have traveled a lot. I’ve been to all 50 states, six countries, taken 11 cruises, drove the Alcan Highway five times, taken the Alaska Ferry twice.  

The best advice I ever received from my parents (or mentor) that helped me later in life:

Dad always said the same two things as we moved to a new place: “Just be yourself and it will all work out,” and “No one is better than anyone else. Remember, we all put our pants on the same way: one leg at a time.”

In all my endeavors – work, play, relationships – I remind myself of those two things. I have been pretty successful in my life with work, family and friends.  I am happy and to me that is what is important in life.
