Wendy has been in the accounting business for thirty years and finds (legal!) tax avoidance thoroughly entertaining. She is a Certified Public Accountant as well as an Enrolled Agent for the IRS. She is a member of the American Institute of CPAs and the Oregon Society of CPAs. Back in college days at the University of Oregon, she was an officer for Beta Alpha Psi accounting fraternity. These days, she is an active member of Eugene Delta Rotary and enjoys community service with The Fun Club.
Wendy has been a Certified Professional QuickBooks Advisor since the inception of the program over fifteen years ago and is know (only half-jokingly) as the “QuickBooks Queen.” She doesn’t know everything about QuickBooks, of course, but is very, very handy to have around when you get stuck or need a new file designed.
