At a young age, I realized that accounting was the cornerstone of measuring all aspects of a business. That epiphany, and the sweat and suffering of a job in a plywood mill to pay for my education, propelled me through a B.S. in Accounting at the University of Portland. From that humble start, I earned my CPA and have since invested over 24 years in the business community.
Today, it’s my client’s trust that draws me back to the office day after day. In a subtle but important way, I provide a sense of security, peace of mind, reassurance and reliability, regardless of their unique needs and goals.
Case in point: One of the most motivating points in my career came when a philanthropic business client called me to his death bed, and entrusted me to care for his legacy’s finances. There is no greater honor than that.
What free time I have goes to my family. With twins in college, and a younger son racing through high school, life is full. (But when there is a quiet moment, I like to spend it following my favorite soccer club, Manchester City FC.)
