Meet Rulien + Associates Payroll Specialist Angela Walls
September 10, 2019
Angela Walls joined the Rulien + Associates team in February of this year as Payroll Specialist, and has already learned to appreciate the team atmosphere. Angela does have an independent streak, though, as is evident when she talks about her solo trek in a car from Nevada to New York loaded down with everything the car would hold…and her cat. She could be classified as a bit of a nomad as well since she’s lived in Nevada, Oregon, Texas, New York, Maryland and Alaska. Most importantly, Angela is a devoted wife to her husband, Matthew, who is active duty in the U.S. Air Force with eight years of service, and a devoted mother to her daughter, Ava. We hope you enjoy getting to know Angela on a more personal level, just as we have.

Broadway star, but then I would need to be able to sing.
Where is your favorite place to be?
Home, cuddling with my daughter.
Do you have a hobby? If so, what do you enjoy?
I read a lot. I’m currently in a book challenge to read 500 books this year.

Cozumel, Mexico and Maui. Pretty much anywhere with a beach is the best.

I have two actually: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” – John Lennon and “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?
What others think of you does not define you. It’s what you think of you that does.
What has been the most important innovation you have witnessed in your lifetime?
The availability of music. It’s crazy to think that people used to only be able to listen to music if they saw someone perform it, and now we have thousands of songs on our phones.
