Experience

I have over 10 years of experience in the accounting industry, 7 of which have been in public accounting.  After graduating from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Economics, I soon realized I needed a more tangible skill-set to pursue my long-term goals. I returned to the academic environment to study Accounting and started my career at San Diego's oldest public accounting firm, Considine & Considine.  While working in San Diego I had the opportunity to assist small to medium-sized businesses and individuals across the financial spectrum.  Services included tax planning and preparation, delinquent filings, notice resolution, & audits.  Additionally, I have experience with various industries including real estate, professional service providers, manufacturing, retail, and hospitality.

Personal

After visiting my husband's family (The Hodosys) in Santa Barbara for the past 10 years, we decided to "go home" and plant our roots where they belong.  When I'm not reconciling, I'm hanging out with the family, improving my golf game, or jogging around Shoreline Park.  I love to travel and experience what the world has to offer.  I am genuinely interested in building long-term relationships with clients and finding the right fit.
