About me:

I began my career as a Tax Advisor with the accounting firm Ernst & Young where I worked in the Expatriate Department. I then spent two years with the local firm Altschuler, Melvoin & Glasser working with high net worth families on anything and everything related to their taxes and finances. In 1999, I joined the Personal Financial Services team at PricewaterhouseCoopers where I continued to work with high net worth families as well as corporate executives. In addition to tax work, I was involved in all areas of their financial planning, including retirement planning, estate planning, education planning and stock option planning.

I started my own practice in 2003 and now work with over 200 clients from all walks of life. I especially enjoy working with self-employed individuals, helping them to understand the financial side of running a business.

I earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Master's degree in Taxation from DePaul University. I became an Enrolled Agent, licensed to represent my clients before the IRS, in 1997.

I am a member of the National Association of Tax Professionals and served on the board of the Professional Women's Club of Chicago (PWCC) for 3 years where I co-chaired the Community Outreach and Education committee.
