I always tell people that it was harder to come out as loving accounting than it was to come out to my friends and family, and it’s true. As a person who identifies and surrounds myself with the progressive community, it was strange to announce I wanted to open an accounting practice.
People are scared of money. They think caring about money makes them greedy or bad. But it doesn’t. Our goal is to help people achieve their selfless goals like saving for their child’s education or managing a non-profit.
I began my professional accounting career at Christensen Consulting, LLC where I specialized in tax preparation for registered domestic partners and same-sex married couples. I was so passionate about spreading good information about a confusing topic that I became a blogger. You can read my articles at Financial Queeries.
As professional and as volunteer working with local non-profits and political campaigns, I have served as Treasurer on the Board of Directors of Budd Bay Rugby Football Club, Capital City Pride and Stonewall Youth.
Prior to beginning my accounting career I was a professional Texas Hold ‘Em poker dealer and still enjoy playing when I can find the time. Don’t worry, I don’t gamble when it comes to accounting.
