Academic Programs


How did you discover Western?

My father-in-law was a professor at the university from 1974 through 2000 and my husband is a graduate of the math program.

What are some of the highlights of your career?

I have over 20 years of experience in accounting, tax and business consulting. I began my career in public accounting at Deloitte, before working at various diverse financial services firms, including New York Life, Marsh & McLennan, hedge fund DE Shaw and Simon Equity Partners. Since moving to Gunnison in 2016, I’ve been running a small tax and consulting practice.

What most excites you about your field?

CPAs have the opportunity to do anything they choose! Industry, business, government, public/private, the largest companies or small businesses, you can travel the world if you wish. CPAs are always in demand.

What is your favorite thing about the Gunnison Valley?

The sunshine and outdoor activities.
