My career started when I was 10 years old...brainstorming with my entrepreneurial parents! I graduated from University of Washington in Accounting earning my CPA and CMA designation. I quickly jumped into auditing with a large local firm. When I moved back to Oregon, I worked for a variety of different CPA firms, as well as private companies including an investment firm, software installation consulting firm and Columbia Sportswear.
After years in accounting, I decided to venture into real estate investing, both on my own and as an agent. I continued in the entrepreneurial world by starting a retail franchise eco-cleaning business which rounded off my experience providing human resources, marketing, information technology, customer service and 'dance on my toes' experience!
After selling that business, I found my way back to my beloved accounting work. I continue to work in person and remotely for a variety of different organizations...from providing services in general operations to full charge accounting...I enjoy it all!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, growing and picking my own food, learning about health, traveling, volunteering and living simply!
