Welcome to Things You Should Know, the web presence of my YouTube channel “Things You Should Know“. I will keep posting videos from YouTube, maybe some of my meandering thoughts about this project, etc.
The idea of this channel is to learn. I firmly believe that learning is good for everyone (including me). Putting this together for you means I have to learn even more than I initially understood.
I will have videos on how various governmental entities work and how taxes, accounting, and other “business” things are supposed to function. In addition, I love history, arts, and hobbies. So yes, this entire idea is probably too large for one area, but I plan on trying to make it work.
About Me: I am a late-blooming progressive transgender woman who became a college graduate in her late thirties. Right out of school, I worked at a CPA firm doing taxes, then moved on for several years as a governmental auditor. My job as an auditor was to audit various governmental agencies, from State agencies, counties, cities, police, and fire departments down to the smallest mosquito district (yes, they have governmental districts for controlling mosquitos).
After my time there, I was a Senior Accounting Analyst for a large local government. Then I became an investigator for the underground economy for a state taxing agency and auditing defense contractors for the United States Department of Defense. Finally, I am currently working on auditing nonprofits that receive grant funding from our local county.
I have many hobbies (history is one of the biggest things I love, but not to be outdone, I love gaming as well).
I do not know everything, I constantly learn and find that I was wrong in the past. If you find I am wrong or have your opinion, I would love to hear it. Please feel free to contact me, I like debates, and I even sometimes like to hear that I was right :).
