Believe it or not, I actually love accounting and taxes. It feels like a puzzle, and the end result is just as satisfying to me as completing the Sunday crossword or a master-level Sudoku.

But I also see taxes as being about more than numbers on the page. Your taxes reflect your successes, your priorities, your dreams, and all the ups and downs of life.

To you, those numbers aren’t just numbers; they are tied up with all sorts of emotions, memories, plans, and priorities. And if numbers and accounting aren’t your passion, they may also bring up a lot of anxiety and stress.

The good news is: it doesn’t have to feel that way any more.

My passion is helping individuals and small business owners feel empowered around their finances and taxes. I want to help you feel confident every time you think about your accounting because you know you have a seasoned professional taking care of all the details.

Whether you are a small business owner, a retiree, a family provider, a single parent, or whatever your circumstances, my job is to ensure that you’re paying exactly the tax you must pay by law — no more, no less. We ensure that every form is filled out correctly, every i dotted and t crossed so that you never have to worry. And we’re always looking out for ways to help you save. I believe that taxes are part of the privilege of living in our great country, but I also believe it’s my job to ensure you’re paying exactly your fair share.

I am not a quick-fix, short-term consultant. My goal is to build a true relationship with every one of my clients. And while I might not ever make you love accounting, many of my clients actually look forward to meeting with me and come away from each meeting feeling more confident, more inspired, and more empowered to use their financial knowledge to get where they want to go.
