I  graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelors Degree in  Accounting.  I began my accounting career in Atlanta, Georgia with a  public accounting firm specializing in Bank auditing and tax preparation  services. I pursued my career in public accounting in my home state of  Virginia where I expanded my accounting expertise to manufacturers,  government contractors, non-profit organizations, construction, and real  estate developers. After many years I returned to San Diego where I  continued my career in auditing and tax preparation for small to medium  sized business clients. I have over 23 years of public and private  accounting experience where I developed expert skills as an auditor, tax  preparer and tax consultant. I maintain CPA licenses in both Virginia  and California.

      I currently live in Santee with my husband and two children where  we both own and operate our own businesses. I served on the Board of  Directors for the Santee Chamber of Commerce from 2014-2016, served as  the Treasurer and Chairman of the Chamber Ambassador Committee.  I currently serve as Treasurer for the CUSSD PTF Board of Directors.
