Accounting Team

Martha Dumont

Billing & Collections Analyst

What’s the difference between a cookie and a catastrophe? The right ingredients measured precisely. Martha learned early on, while working in her family’s commercial bakery, the importance of precision.  Today, as the billing and collection specialist at SMI, she works with numbers as carefully as she once worked with sugar, salt and flour. She keeps track of invoices and makes sure media partners are paid precisely on time. She’s point person for podcast invoices, provides detailed banking services, gets great terms on client’s credit apps and generally oversees every detail of the day-to-day operations. And what keeps her happy? A meditative stroll through the Art Museum. Counseling a co-worker by the coffee maker. Summer weekends kayaking with her husband at their lake house. Two wonderful grown children. Gardening and, yes, she’s still baking. Beautifully. So whether it’s a yummy desert or careful accounting you want, for Martha it’s a piece of cake.

Brandon Moody

Accounting Assistant

Need to know how many errors Marv Throneberry made during the Yankee’s 1955 season? No? Well, if you ever do, just ask Brandon. He’s Mr. Stats for all things sports. And with his numerical mind, he’s the perfect accounting assistant. Handling client’s billing and reconciling vendor invoices like the champ he is. Actually, two-time champ. As linebacker he won two state football championships in high school. Brandon is the youngest SMI employee, but he’s really an old soul. Easy to talk to—kind, caring, and a great listener. In his free time he enjoys growing (and shaving and growing) a beard, puppy rearing, live music, skiing, playing basketball and football. He also runs more than a human being ever should. Out of the office Brandon is still thinking in numbers. He’s studying to become a full-fledged Certified Public Accountant. Once he passes the CPA exam we’ll seek him out to file our taxes. We may be more advanced in years than Brandon, but there’s no one we’d trust more with our finances.

Emily Morris

Accounting Assistant

Here’s how to tell the difference between Wonder Woman and Emily Morris: Wonder Woman can’t do everything. Emily can. And she does it joyfully. With a heart as big as Texas, where she grew up.  As an Accounting Assistant she helps with administrative duties, prepares financial documents, handles reconciliations, is in charge of broadcast invoices and if someone needs help anywhere in the office, she magically appears. And that’s just the first eight hours of Emily’s day. After work she becomes at least five people. A wife. A mother of two mighty dogs. A brilliant musical theater actress, a karaoke champion, a gifted photographer with an online gallery, a cook par excellence, a genius crafter,  a builder of furniture and yes, more. Much more. How does she do it all you wonder? So do we.
