About Us: (Take) Time to Celebrate Life

SEIZE THE DAY, CELEBRATE THE MOMENT: Connie Miller, GMI bookkeeper and avid Colts fan, celebrates life a year after receiving a stage IV cancer diagnosis

All of us at GMI raised a glass and offered a toast and best wishes to our bookkeeper (and avid Colts fan) at a recent office party. Connie Miller was the guest of honor at a celebration she hosted marking the one-year anniversary of the day she was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer. “A year ago, I didn’t think I’d be here today,” she said. “The news landed pretty hard. But I’m not planning to go anywhere soon.”

.
Connie’s determination (“‘plain orneriness,’ you mean,” she says with a laugh), courage and sense of humor are evident each day in her being present and on the job, in her professional interactions with clients, and in the upbeat attitude she demonstrates.

.
Any business is as good as the employees it is able to recruit, train and retain. During her seven years at GMI, Connie has streamlined accounting procedures, answered thousands of phone calls, interacted with clients from across the nation, helped shepherd the company through the Great Recession, and generally worked one or two small miracles a day.

.
We’re grateful for her abilities, attitude and example.

.
Connie, here’s to you!
