As a 3rd Generation Nevadan, it is my great pleasure, to have joined the team of Clausen and Co CPA’s. My 21-years of experience in the financial industry, has allowed me to successfully tailor client’s services, always providing clients, with worry-free peace if mind. I’m looking forward to sharing that same experience, as an Administrative Assistant, in an operations capacity, here at Clausen & Co.
I take pride in having this opportunity, to be working, for this well-established, local family business, known for their exceptional client care, while managing tax concerns and its requirements. Sharing the same core values; Integrity, Trust, and Honesty, all which are close to my heart. I’m excited to work with such a team, striving for only the best for the clients and their experience. These same values, over the years, have aided me as a single mom of two young boys, providing a home for security, and building a career of helping people.
