Professionally, I am a Certified Bookkeeper, have prepared all forms of income taxes for a small CPA firm, was a licensed tax preparer here in Oregon for two years, and enjoy discovering new things computer programs can do. I worked at the JSMA for two years prior to joining CASIT. Personally, I am a Southern California native, mother of 2 grown daughters. I moved to Springfield in 2012 with my younger daughter and her son after the death of my husband thereby ending our 37-year marriage. I enjoy quilting and sewing, playing with my 2 grandchildren (soon to be 3 grandchildren), walking/hiking in the beautiful Oregon outdoors, and thoroughly enjoy the quality of life in this part of Oregon compared to the hectic lifestyle in San Diego.
