I have taught college accounting and bookkeeping since 1992.
I first taught for Santa Rosa Junior College in 2002.
I grew up in northern California, graduating from Cardinal Newman High School in 1978.
One of seven children, I worked my way through college, earning my degree in 1985, a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - Accounting Major.
I worked for a big corporation for a few years. I worked as a full charge bookkeeper for few years with many clients. I had so much fun that I decided to pass the California CPA exam, which I did in 1992. Then I worked for a CPA firm as a financial accounting auditor. I was having so much fun that I decided to go to law school.
I earned a Juris Doctorate degree in 1996. I passed the California BAR exam in 1997. I am a lawyer licensed to practice in all California courts, and the northern district Federal courts.
