First Time Backpacking Solo
Amanda Aguillard was only 16 years old when she realized she wanted to become a CPA, and she’s used that passion ever since to encourage innovation in the industry she loves. That commitment lives on through her work as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Padgett Business Services, one of North America’s largest accounting service and business consulting providers.
Amanda, who was named one of the Top 50 Women in Accounting in 2018 and 2019, is the author of Xero: A Comprehensive Guide for Accountants and Bookkeepers. She was the Xero Evangelist of the Year in 2016, and used her experience as a Xero Certification instructor to co-found Elefant, a continuing education company for accountants and bookkeepers.
When she’s not advocating for her industry, she spends her free time cooking for her two children, reading historical fiction, and backcountry hiking. She has recently embraced solo backpacking and has started hiking parts of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia.
