I grew up in Florida and ended up in Northern California just before my 21st birthday. I studied music and accounting at Sonoma State University and worked for a CPA in Marin County during college.

Several jobs later and an eight-year break to raise my family, I answered a part-time bookkeeping ad at Summit Engineering. And the rest is history!
