Perkins promoted at MBK
HOLYOKE – Meyers Brothers Kalicka, P.C. (MBK) announced the promotion of Teresa Perkins to senior associate in the Audit and Accounting division.

Before coming to MBK, Perkins was a staff accountant at Big Y Foods. Her experience as a private accountant on the client side gives her a unique perspective on public accounting.
“Teresa has worked hard to gain the experience and expertise necessary to succeed in her new position,” Howard Cheney, MBK partner, said. “She’s the ideal person to not only oversee younger staff, but to train new interns and auditors.”
Perkins takes a very personalized approach to her service, often baking for clients as a way to offset the tension that can surround an audit.
“I like to show that we’re not big scary auditors,” she said. “We’re all just trying for the same goal, to complete the audit as smoothly and quickly as possible.”
Perkins is a graduate of Western New England College, earning a bachelor’s degree in 2006 a master’s of science and accounting in 2009. She is currently studying for the CPA exams. When not in the office, Perkins is an avid bowler and a big fan of Japanese anime.
