I have been living here in the Columbia Basin my whole life. I was born and raised in Moses Lake, WA. I graduated from Big Bend Community College and moved on to Central Washington University, where I obtained my bachelor’s degree. Then I moved on to handling the books and records for an alfalfa processor and exporter here in Othello, WA and then began working with Ed Shriver, CPA, a local CPA with a firm established here in Othello for over 30 years. While working with Ed I obtained my licensing as a Certified Public Accountant and Ed and I partnered up for over 15 years. I work with my staff to ensure all our clients, both small and large, are happy with all the services we provide. Give us a call so we can help you to keep your business and personal taxes at a minimum and achieve your business and financial goals. We can help you with everything from a basic low-cost form 1040-EZ to a full set of reviewed financial statements for a sizable Corporation and everything in between!
