Born and raised in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, I began working at age 15. I put myself through college earning a Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 2012, and a Master of Business Administration in 2017. I most recently worked in corporate accounting at midsize companies as a Financial Controller. My goal is to help small to mid-size companies improve customer and employee experiences and increase profit. I enjoy hiking, golf, swimming, camping, travel, theme parks, singing, dancing, spending time with friends and family, and exploring wine country. I live in Murrieta, CA with my husband and two children.
