I was born in Everett, Massachusetts and my parents moved to Grants Pass, Oregon when I was seven. We later moved to Los Angeles, California when I was 12. I moved to Phoenix from Los Angeles in January of 1994 immediately after surviving the Northridge earthquake.
Because of my work, I can live anywhere in the world and Phoenix is where I want to be. Arizona is such a beautiful state. There is so much to do here and so many wonderful places to explore. I like doing many outdoor activities and there is a lot of beautiful opportunities for that here.
Accounting is my second passion aside from my charitable work. I began doing the bookkeeping for my parent’s construction company in my early teens and I have been an accountant ever since. It was very inspiring for me to bring their employees checks that I had processed, I felt so grown up. I also find accounting to be a rewarding career. I plan to always help and inspire others to help and inspire others throughout my life.
