She started in taxes as a high school student, working part time at her accounting teacher’s tax office.  After graduating Cal State San Marcos with a degree in business, she worked full time as a Cost Accountant for Sensormatic.  After a few years, she moved on to an even better job: motherhood, raising three awesome kids.  During that time, she worked part time doing various accounting and tax jobs.
