Pat Kent joined ARL in September 1987 as the assistant secretary. Her passion was working with numbers, so in 1992 she started helping the accountant by filing invoices and photocopying. Shortly after, she was trained as the accounting assistant to run the accounting department. This position included inputting all invoices in the system, printing checks, running reports and making bank deposits. Her job title now is the accounting coordinator, which includes working closely with the accountant, handing the accounts payable and receivables.
