As a life-long learner and CPA profession advocate, I aim to drive progression in areas such as technology, environmental and social governance, ethical standards and tax reform.

I’m the senior manager on the AICPA’s Tax Practice and Ethics team. I strive to provide members the guidance they need to remain the premier providers of tax services. I publish resources on trending issues and am quoted as an expert in publications such as The New York Times, Forbes and CNBC. I manage executive volunteer committees to collaboratively keep a pulse on global professional trends and make needed change for the profession and public interest.

Prior to joining the AICPA, I worked in a tax technology company and in various CPA practices where I provided client advisory services. I find joy in speaking to students about the many opportunities in this career path and supporting our community with financial literacy.

What are you doing to make a difference in the profession, your community, the world?

As a founding member of Greensboro Women for Good, I aim to lead and nurture more kindness and generosity to support our community. We work together to expand our outreach and give resources to local charities. One charity we’ve supported is making a significant impact on ending childhood hunger in our community.

And, at the root of my existence stems love for children. I am a proud mom of Henry and Madelyn, ages eight and four. Helping them grow into kind adults and supporting their education is my day-to-day passion.
