My professional background has included over 20 years in pubic and corporate accounting and 12 years of service with the US Dept. of the Treasury, Office of the Inspector General for Tax Administration. This experience provided an extensive exposure to tax law. Also included is my service on the Finance Committee of the US Senate (staff of Max Baucus) where tax law is written, to its application by the IRS and finally to hands-on management experience in the business world serving personal and business clients. All three areas provided the background, knowledge, and experience to assist my clients in making the best business and tax decisions possible in today's changing and challenging economic environment.
