I have been a business consultant since 1998 and a Quickbooks ProAdvisor® since 2003. Prior to becoming an independent contractor, I played a key role in building the accounting and operational foundations of a successful Bay Area company. During my first three years with this company, sales grew from $100,000 to over $64 million. This rapid growth and dynamic work environment provided me with intensive experience in accounting and operations management, new product development and implementation, project management, marketing plan development, and 1099 Compliance expertise.
I have been a dedicated volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center since 2001. In addition to being on the Tuesday Day Crew Animal Care Team, I also assist the Stranding Department with animal rescues and releases. I have also served as Chair for the 2004 and 2005 Run for the Seals footrace, and led the fundraising arm of The TMMC/Giants Marine Mammal Day from 2004-2007.
I graduated from the University of Utah, College of Business in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance.
