Hello and welcome to our site! Let me know if I may answer any questions for you. Here is a bit about me: I grew up in the mountains west of Colorado Springs, in the heart of the Pikes Peak Region. I have been a CPA in Colorado (license no. 20583) since 2000, and I have several years of experience in both accounting and accounting education. I served as Chair, Vice Chair, and member on the Colorado State Board of Accountancy from 2015-2020. 

In my free time I love to hike and cross country ski in the beautiful mountains of my home state.
