Getting to Know Marie Shields

Marie Shields is celebrating her 15th anniversary with Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk and Loyd, LLC on July 27th. Marie wears a lot of hats around the office, she can be seen doing a variety of tasks from greeting and assisting clients, to managing the firm's time and billing software, to providing numerous support functions for the audit and tax teams.

Marie, who is a native of Syracuse, Kansas, is married to Daryl, who fills his days working on their farm in rural Lindsborg. The couple built their home ten years ago and Marie said she absolutely LOVED the experience. While Marie and Daryl may have decided how the house would look …  the king of the Shields' castle, four-year-old, Snyder, runs the show.

Here's a little more about Marie â€¦

Not just one … all foods!

Girls' weekend at Lake Tenkiller. (Marie is headed to her favorite spot with the gals later this month!)
