I am originally from San Luis Obispo, California. I graduated from St. Mary’s College of California and have been a CPA since 1988. I have worked in the public accounting field for over 35 years, first with a mid-sized firm in Redwood City, and then on to my own tax, accounting, and audit firm after I moved from Hayward to Rohnert Park in 1991. I have been active in community non-profit organizations over the years including the Madrone Audubon Society, the Rohnert Park Chamber of Commerce, and the Rancho Cotate Boosters. I have over 15 years’ experience with not-for-profit, school district and governmental audits, and over 35 year experience with individual, corporate, partnership and non-profit tax preparation and accounting services. I was also a founding member of the Rohnert Park Mothers Club and am very grateful to have raised my 5 boys in the wonderful community of Sonoma County.
