Find your tribe! The place where you are surrounded by ethical, uplifting people – where you matter. I once heard no one can be a great leader unless they genuinely care about the success of everyone on their team; and that is what I like about this firm. You can perform accounting in any industry, just like any industry can hire any accountant. It is important to have a respectful working relationship between firms and clients. Accounting is a profession where the person behind it makes a difference, and I am so happy to be on a team of such great people.
I have been in various roles in accounting for more than 20 years. I have worked for small businesses; large, international corporations; as well as state and local governments. The variety of the roles I have undertaken have given me quite a diverse background in bookkeeping, payroll, financial reporting, auditing and defending audits. The only consistency is that I still enjoy the accounting field just as much as I did all those years ago.
I have three grown children and one sweet dog. I love dogs, and really, most animals. I spend my time constantly learning new things and trying new things, as well as participating in several local non-profit groups in the community. I moved back to Grand Junction two years ago because I love the area and the people here. I am very happy to call this place home.
