How does a CPA find herself immersed in the wonderful world of interior design? It all began when I decided to leave “corporate” America after 9/11 drastically changed my situation. I always had an entrepreneurial bug so I decided it was time to fly solo. I had been working for various corporations doing financial accounting for about 16 years and wanted to keep doing accounting, just for small business owners rather than corporations. So I decided to obtain my CPA license and went to work for a small CPA firm where I was sent out on an assignment to do accounting for one of his clients.
That client turned out to be a top award-winning designer in Scottsdale and something just clicked for me.
After obtaining enough work experience for my CPA license, I launched my own business. The designer I was working with asked about hiring me directly and thus began my journey into the world of design; I have never looked back and never enjoyed my work more. The year was 2004 and since then, I have built a niche by helping interior designers with the intense levels of paperwork required to see a design concept become a reality.
