I am a recently retired accounting executive living in Palm Springs with my sons who are in high school.

In my previous position, I was responsible for managing accounting, human resources and corporate operations for a large, publicly traded technology company. Mentoring and teaching come naturally to me.

I am easy to get along with, have a great sense of humor and enjoy helping people reach their full potential.

In short, I have over 30 years experience in management, accounting and finance and believe I can help mentor students looking to advance in these areas.

I have limited teaching experience and tend to customize education plans based on the student and their objectives.

QuickBooks

I am a CPA with over 30 years experience using multiple accounting systems. In addition, I own a small business where I do all the accounting using QuickBooks 2014. The program is somewhat user friendly but having an accounting background helps navigate through the system. Additional checks and balances should be put in place when relying on QuickBooks as you main record keeping system.
