You'll know from the moment you talk with her, that Debra loves what she does for a living. She loves helping small business owners! She's perceptive, generous, and friendly, yet she's hard working, extremely knowledgeable, and professional. Debra has been working in her own practice as an accountant since 1978 and as a CPA since 1987. (She passed the CPA exam on the first try – that's quite a feat!)
Debra is a fourth-generation Seattleite; she even graduated from Kent-Meridian High School only a few miles from her current home-based office.
Through the years, she has managed the books and taxes for hundreds of small businesses just like yours. Since they receive such respectful and honest advice, and prompt and accurate accounting services, most clients stay with Debra for the life of their business.
When she's not handling your accounting, Debra and her husband enjoy spending time with their two daughters and their families, love golfing, traveling, and watching the Seattle Seahawks (Go Hawks!).

Vanessa's educational background fits perfectly into keeping our firm and clients organized and well cared for. Besides having a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and a Minor in Sociology from the Honor's College at Washington State University, she also has a Master’s Degree in Teaching from City University. As Debra's daughter, she brings a vested interest into running the office, which you’ll immediately sense. (This is her mother's very-unbiased opinion.)
Outside of work, Vanessa and her husband choose to spend most of their time just doing fun things with their kids, extended family, the two cats and their crazy dog, Otis.
