I am a sole proprietor trusted business advisor in Sacramento, CA seeking new relationships where I can add value to an organization’s accounting, finance, and income tax processes. While I am a sole practitioner, I have a strong network of advisors and assistants to support me or to handle various aspects of your needs that are outside of my expertise. Together, we are your trusted business advisors.
I established my practice in 2013 to provide tax compliance and accounting and finance advisory services to a small group of investors with a national franchising enterprise operating at one time over 200 businesses in 11 states. I served as a consultant and as the director of finance and compliance over the years leading to the opening of my office on Feb 1, 2019 where I continue to serve that group while looking to expand the services I provide to additional businesses.
Prior to forming my practice, I was a tax manager for a regional public accounting firm where I prepared and reviewed income tax returns for individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations. I also gained significant experience planning and supporting financial statement audits of charities and associations.
My unique blend of public accounting and business industry experience allows me to gain a deep understanding of your needs and develop a solution that will help you achieve your goals, whether you are just starting a business, considering expanding through acquisition, or planning to pass your legacy down to the next generation.
