I enjoy meeting new people and it is important to me that I make a difference in their lives, both personally and professionally. As a CPA and strategic thinker, I have the opportunity to help professionals and business owners save money and make the most of their financial resources. I build long-term relationships with my clients and work hard to make a lasting contribution to their financial success. I hold myself and my team to a high standard of expertise because I realize even a tiny oversight has an impact.
In addition to my formal education, I have encountered many of the financial situations my clients will face throughout their lives, including watching investments rise and fall, home purchase and sale, owning rental property and orchestrating a significant career change. These experiences taught me invaluable lessons about financial management and make me an important resource to clients who face similar circumstances in their lives.
I advise business owners not only about taxes, investments and corporate structure; I also show them ways to manage their business resources more strategically. My work provides an inside view of their business operations and financial decisions, allowing me to pinpoint key areas that tie up their money unnecessarily and suggest potential changes which can positively influence financial outcomes.
On the personal side, I have a passion for adventure! I enjoy sailing both locally in the Pacific and far away in warm water. I am currently studying for my private pilot’s license, take guitar lessons and enjoy quality time with friends.
