why my firm
As a small firm, you know that we will personally handle your account. I will call you back and give you the information you need.
I have over 25 years of accounting experience and over six years of public accounting experience working for you.
As a CPA licensed in NC, I am regulated by a state board and must comply with strict ethical standards or face disciplinary action.
I am licensed by the state of NC as a Certified Public Accountant. I am required to take 40 hours of continuing education annually.
I was raised in Wilmington, NC and received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Immediately after graduation, I worked at a local family owned business for 20 years. This valuable experience taught me the ins and outs of running a small business. I decided to further my career by pursuing the CPA credential. I went back to school to get the additional education needed to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination. I passed the exam the first time within five months while continuing to work for a local CPA 30 hours a week and raising my family.
In October of 2020, I expanded my firm by hiring a full time bookkeeper and administrator to help me grow and serve my clients. With her years of accounting, customer service and administrative experience, our firm can better serve you.
We expanded again in early 2021 by bringing on a Cape Fear Community College accounting student to help during tax season. She proved to be so vital to our operation, we brought her on permanently immediately following her graduation.
When I'm not working, I spend my time with my husband, three children and dog. They are the reason I started my own firm and support me daily.
