I am a graduate of the University of Florida where I received a Bachelor degree in Finance with a minor in Economics. I also have a Master's in Professional Accountancy from Montana State University. I first started teaching while at the University of Florida. While attending UF I taught SCUBA classes to my fellow students. Later I went on to teach adults at a private dive school. Throughout my career I have taught seasonal staff up to CFO's various accounting and finance skills. While attending Montana State University I was selected to be a graduate teaching assistant, where I kept office hours for all accounting courses. During my last job I taught the new associates various software and tax topics. While learning business concepts I believe it is very important to see the big picture. It can be very easy to get lost in the details of calculations, but its important to understand how everything fits together. When not working I enjoy sailing all around the Seattle area as well as hiking. I also spend a good deal of time trying to learn my fiddle.
