Debbie is a Southern California resident who grew up in Riverside, CA. She enlisted in the U.S. Army after 9/11 and served her country as an Intelligence Analyst where she completed a tour in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). After the military, she went on a study abroad trip to Florence, Italy and used that opportunity to travel throughout Europe. Debbie moved to San Diego because of the weather and all the outdoor activities that San Diego has to offer! She began her accounting career at a solar startup company where she handled all the business transactions and administrative duties. She immediately fell in love with accounting when she discovered that accounting came naturally to her. She transitioned herself into an accounting career where she is able to utilize her experience to assist other businesses with their accounting and finance obligations within San Diego County. While working full-time, Debbie completed her Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree at the University of Phoenix, San Diego. She has experience working with both publicly traded and private companies specializing in accounting and finance. She is currently a CPA candidate and is looking forward to passing her tests. You can find Debbie riding Dressage in the early weekday mornings, running in the evenings next to the bay, and hiking trails on the weekend with her Golden Retriever, Sophie!
