Balancing a work life and personal life can be challenging for some, but not for Christy Sommers. As a Senior Manager at Maner Costerisan, a full service certified public accounting agency, Sommers manages the audit department. She has been an accountant for 16 years, and currently works mainly with school districts and nonprofits. As part of her job, she inspects their financial accounts and makes sure that they are within code. Sommers is actively involved in the community outside of work as well. She is a member of the National Association of Career Women, where she serves as secretary of the Lansing branch and treasurer of the national association. In her down time, she likes to read Stephen King novels. She also loves remodeling and redecorating her home with her husband and taking yearly trips with him.
