Laura Thompson


Accounting is my third career. My first career was at Costco Wholesale Inc, from 1987-1999, finishing as a Corporate Buyer for Private Label Foods.  I 'retired' to stay home with our children.  My husband and I became small business owners in November 2006, which is when I realized how much I enjoy accounting work. Before coming to CLA, I earned a two-year accounting degree and worked as an independent bookkeeper for two clients. I'm pleased to say that those two clients continue to be CLA clients.

CLA, and our BizOps practice especially, have allowed me to use all of my varied experiences and skill-sets to provide great service to our clients.
