I am a 1988 graduate of Portland State University. Immediately after graduating, I began employment with a local certified public accounting firm in the Portland metropolitan area. In June, 1991, I moved to a position with another local certified public accounting firm where I worked as senior staff accountant. In 1994, I left the firm to start my own practice.

I have experience with organizations in several industries including:

  • Medical
  • Construction
  • Distribution
  • Manufacturing

Services provided to these clients include tax planning and preparation, business financing solutions, financial statement preparation and computerized accounting system assistance.
