I have been working in the accounting field since 1978 when I attended a private bookkeeping school in New York. I went on from there to work at law offices, vocational schools, and in private industry. Then somewhere around 1989 I found my road into the public accounting field. It has been my passion ever since. Although I do not have any formal degrees in the field, I feel that I have been so much luckier than most to have learned from the bottom up....the days of spreadsheets, the one write system, and debits and credits...and actually knowing what that means! I have been working in public accounting ever since and love every minute of it.
