Originally I'm from the midwest, went to school in California and received an undergraduate degree in Accounting. After that, I passed the CPA exam and then the enrolled agent exam. I worked in public accounting for several years before transitioning to my current position. Currently, I teach lower division accounting, taxes, and QuickBooks at Laney College in Oakland. I love teaching and helping my students. For what it's worth, I think I was born a bookkeeper!!

q & a

What characteristics do your favorite clients share?

Organized and prepared clients are the easiest to serve. If you need help let us know so we can help you.

Why should a client hire you?

Each client is special and their situation is unique. We strive to deliver the best results in a reasonable time frame.

Describe a time where you went beyond expectations when working with a client.

During the course of my tax career, I have encountered complicated situations that required advanced research to resolve. In the end, it all works out but not without the additional due diligence.
