I started my career in public accounting after coming home from my first year of accounting studies in Vermont. The job started out as a summer internship, but grew into full time permanent work within a short period of time. Getting the opportunity to learn on the job, meeting many interesting clients and the immediate immersion into accounting and tax was a thrill for me. I knew I have chosen the right field for my interests and talents.

I put myself through college by attending night school and working days. With the assistance of two very generous bosses, I attended Golden Gate University, studying accounting, and there, I was able to apply some of my work experience against college credits.

After working in the public accounting for 15 years, 10 with a firm and five being self-employed, I accepted a position with Boisset; a client which I had worked on throughout the 15 years.
