Today’s update is from Jada Pittman, who works out of RSM’s Birmingham office had the opportunity to visit Sea Island for The RSM Classic this year, as a result of her leadership role in raising charitable funds through the firm’s Birdies Fore Love initiative. Read Jada’s first-hand account about her time at The RSM Classic below.
Spectacular! That’s how I would describe Sea Island. It is simply stunning. We flew into Jacksonville, FL, which was about an hour and 15 minutes from the resort. Our driver, Todd with his stories about gold and pirates on the island made it an interesting ride, and the time in the car flew by. Before I even realized it, we were pulling up to The Cloister at Sea Island where we were greeted by the lovely staff and by RSM employees.
I am here because my office in Birmingham, AL, raised more than $60,000 for Birdies Fore Love. I’ve been with RSM one month shy of a year, and this was my first time fundraising for this program but it certainly won’t be my last! I worked with a great team, and together we collectively came up with the charity that we wanted to sponsor, as well as fundraising ideas for our office. We made sure that our employees had a great time raising money for a great cause. This experience would not have been possible without them!
This is also my first year at The RSM Classic. I am in awe of the aura and ambiance of this place, but more so the people who occupy the space. RSM truly has the best group of people to work with. From my home office, to here and during my tenure at the firm, I’ve met wonderful people and it’s truly a blessing to be a part of this firm. It was a pleasure to meet Joe Adams, our managing partner and CEO, although he totally took me by surprise when he called me and Daniel Koehl of the San Antonio office to the front during the reception to congratulate us on our efforts. Everyone here has been a delight, and I am looking forward to walking the grounds and experiencing more of what Sea Island and The RSM Classic have to offer.
The RSM Classic couldn’t have a better name because that is exactly what it is, classic. Timeless. Beautiful.
