I am originally from New Jersey, born and raised there. In 1993, I packed up the kids and moved to the sunny state of Arizona.  I lived in the Mayer area for about 8 years and moved to the Verde Valley in 2002.  I love the diversity of Arizona and its every changing landscape and seasons by just driving an hour north…south…east or west…Can never be bored.

I have 3 grown daughters and going on my 5th grandchild this coming year. I have owned my own salon in Old Town Cottonwood before changing careers and getting into Real Estate almost 3 years ago.  I really enjoy meeting new people and helping them learn about the Verde Valley and Sedona areas.

I am a single mom of two, a 36-year-old and an 11-year-old. I graduated from Palomar College in San Marcos CA in 1995 with my certification in accounting and have been doing bookkeeping and income tax preparation ever since.

I started my company, Taxes By T, in 1995 shortly after graduating and while I did work as an employee in various industries my goal has always been to build up my business enough that I wouldn’t need to punch a traditional time clock. I was finally able to achieve that goal in 2013 and was building the company at a nice gradual pace.

In June of 2015, I began taking classes at National Paralegal College to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in Paralegal Studies to compliment my accounting and tax business. I will achieve that goal in July 2018 with the designation of Summa Cum Laude and am considering continuing on for my Master’s Degree in Taxation.

Retired in February 2018 from Southwest Transplant Alliance after 21 years of service. The best job ever in my entire life. Moved to Clarkdale from Dallas in February as well. At Southwest Transplant Alliance I started out as a Family Services Coordinator, meaning that I did family approaches when a patient was facing imminent death and qualified to be an organ donor. The last six years of my career were in the Human Resources department.

My husband Mark and I own a PinPoint Local franchise and I am also a Marketing Relations Affiliate with SendOutCards. I started this venture in June of this year.

I have two grown sons and Mark has three grown sons.

I enjoy making quilt tops, playing Pickleball, doing Zumba and Pilates. I’ve made many wonderful friendships in the short couple of months that we’ve lived in Arizona. We truly feel that this move was the best decision we ever made.

I firmly believe in the PWG Mission of supporting, inspiring, and empowering women and I love the networking opportunities that the PWG events create.

Read Bio

I grew up hearing “do what you love.” At first, that was teaching. I spent 5 years teaching Severely Emotionally Disturbed children, and what I loved to do quickly turned into a nightmare.

My next favorite thing was math. I accepted the Assistant Controller position at a film distribution house which grew into Executive Assistant to the CFO. I then became the Human Resources Manager for an independent producer. I did the same job at a financial services firm, and finally became the HR Director for a film conversion studio. I was injured at that job, and laid off because of it.

My husband and I then saw an opportunity, starting an Online Business Management and HR Consulting division of his marketing company.

Over the next several years I learned how clients market themselves and realized that during those 15 years in Human Resources, I already handled a core marketing issue: Internally Marketing the company to employees and potential employees.

As many of our clients are also couples, I realize that I’ve come full circle. We create strategic marketing plans, but we’re also teaching what we have and continue to learn every day, marketing strategies as well as interpersonal relations.
