A Not-So-Hot Summer
As the calendar flips from August to September, ICAP management season is winding down, school is...
As a high school student, Doris Díaz found that her love of math and her high attention to detail were a perfect fit for a career in accounting. She credits one of her high school teachers with uncovering this passion and ultimately helping her to land an accounting internship even before she started college. Ultimately, Doris graduated from Universidad del Sagrado Corazón with her BS in Accounting.
Doris began her career as a Staff Accountant for a consulting firm in Puerto Rico, where she gradually worked her way up to become an Accounting Supervisor. In 2018, Doris and her husband moved from Puerto Rico to Texas with their son. She was excited to receive a call from a recruiter seeking a bilingual accountant for an energy advisory firm with an award-winning culture. From the videos she watched on 5’s website to the warm reception she received on entering the company’s headquarters in Irving, Doris knew that she had found her new work home. Today, Doris serves as 5’s Head of Accounting. She loves that everyone at 5 brings their best effort to work and comes together as a team rather than competing with one another.
In her role as Accountress, Doris oversees the management and reporting of financial data for all of 5’s brands in both the US and Mexico. She prepares and analyzes 5’s accounts, financial records, and other financial obligations, to ensure compliance with financial reporting. Doris also serves as an HR liaison between our employees and our Professional Employer Organization.
When she is not reconciling accounts for 5, Doris loves to cook for her family and friends. In fact, Doris feels a strong connection between her work in accounting and in the kitchen, both require a great deal of planning, patience, and precision. Doris appreciates the diverse culture at 5 as she works alongside team members from different countries, many of whom speak foreign languages and bring unique cultural perspectives to the workplace. She also loves the chance to talk about Puerto Rico and explain to others that the island is a part of the US, and she is very proud of being a US citizen. Doris and her husband live in Lewisville, Texas with their two sons.
Doris has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of the Sacred Heart in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
