Who I work with

My clients include commercial and residential real estate owners and developers, specifically within the multifamily and affordable housing sectors. I work closely with presidents and accounting managers of property management companies, as well as controllers, CFOs and presidents of real estate development firms.

My specialty

I specialize in providing audit services to the affordable and multifamily housing sectors, focusing specifically on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) projects. I have significant experience in cost certifications, identifying low-income and new-market tax credits, and helping developers and authorities overcome any challenges in the auditing process to deliver quality financial reporting to meet tight deadlines.


Results I have delivered

Over the course of my 25-year career, I have become a recognized financial reporting specialist and strive to provide unparalleled technical excellence and support. I am also a certified CaseWare trainer and consultant, and continue to educate and share my knowledge with internal Aprio professionals.

Unique things about me

Fun fact: I met my husband while playing coed flag football! He is a graduate of the University of Georgia and I graduated from the University of Florida, so we have a healthy SEC rivalry when it comes to our college teams.


When I am not at work

I spend a lot of time watching my daughters play softball on their high school and travel teams, and I also cheer on the Atlanta Braves and Florida Gators. Outside of sports, we love visiting our family in Clearwater, Florida — the sunsets there are incredible.

People say I am


Reliable, resourceful, straightforward and supportive — I balance analytical knowledge with my easygoing nature to provide my clients with the best service possible.



I received my Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting from the University of Florida. I am also a member of the AICPA and the GSCPA.
