I started my career at the Internal Revenue Service as a Revenue Agent in Richmond, Virginia. I was then promoted to an enforcement attorney with the IRS Office of Professional Responsibility. I was the lead attorney on several ground breaking ethics cases, developed due diligence standards for VITA, and ran the OPR project to combat tax debt resolution firms.
I left the IRS shortly after the government shutdown for public accounting. There I lead our firm's tax controversy section. I've had the opportunity to work with high wealth individuals, actors, and professional athletes.
I've recently moved to the Virginia area and work with PBMares, LLP. I'm also an adjunct professor of accounting at the University of Mary Washington.
I have my BA from Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. My Masters in Accounting from University of Connecticut. My JD from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and an LLM in Taxation from Georgetown University.
I'm a licensed New York attorney and Virginia CPA.
