Viki Smith has come full circle in her career. She started in banking when she was 20 and spent 3+ years training and supervising tellers. She moved to Africa and worked in the Budget and Fiscal Office of the American Embassy for 5 years where she was responsible for processing travel, education, and change of station claims. She was also the cashier on local employee paydays and during US Navy goodwill visits.
Moving to Boise put her back at a bank, in accounts payable, for a couple years. She then worked as a purchasing agent at the US Bureau of Reclamation for 5 years while studying English Literature and accounting. Finally, in 1994, she took on a full-time position testing software and managing software testers — a position she fully explored for 23 years. Upon retiring in 2017, she circled back to her roots when Kelly said, “Come work with me!” Viki is thrilled to be working with Idaho Accounting Services and getting back into accounting.
When not fiddling with numbers, Viki can be found spending time with her family, puttering in her vegetable garden, bicycling, hiking, reading and traveling.
