Debbie is a Southern California native who moved to San Diego because of the weather and all the outdoor activities that San Diego has to offer! 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. After her service, she went on a study abroad trip to Florence, Italy, and used that opportunity to travel throughout Europe. Debbie has experience working with both publicly traded and private companies. She began her accounting career at a solar startup company where she was responsible for all business transactions and administrative duties. She immediately fell in love with accounting and her ability to utilize her experience to assist other businesses with their accounting and finance obligations. While working full-time, Debbie completed her Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree and is currently pursuing her CPA. 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!
