Meet The Team
Your CPA Advisory Team and support.
I am an accountant that enjoys problem solving and loves challenges. I choose accountancy as my career path because accountants are trustworthy, honest, responsible individuals, which are all qualities that I see within myself. I am currently working towards earning my masters and CPA license.
I am the oldest of seven children, so I consider myself a natural born leader. Setting a good example for my siblings to follow is what motivates me to do my best in my career and life. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, painting, creating things, and traveling.
I am the mom of two amazing sons who are my world. My oldest is now a senior in college and my youngest just started his journey in middle school. I enjoy spending time with family & friends, having fun at the beach and traveling.
I always knew I wanted my professional work to be in the accounting field. I have been in accounting since the early 2000's and have been loving every minute of it. Accounting is such a broad and interesting field, and it is an essential part of everyone’s personal life and especially so for those business owners. I am grateful to be a small part of that. There's a saying that states "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life" and I agree!
