I was born in Decatur, Illinois, and moved to Carbondale, Illinois to attend Southern Illinois University studying Accounting; it had been my passion since a 6th grade checkbook project. I met my husband David there and we married in August 1996. Once we both finished our degrees and added two beautiful daughters to the household, it was time to move to St. Louis where David worked and I began an unexpected stay-at-home mom journey.
June 2003, we were moved to McKinney by David’s company and we’ve built our girls’ lives here around school activities and volunteering. I was heavily involved in the PTA’s of schools they attended, including holding various positions on the board such as VP of Volunteers, VP of Family Programs, Treasurer and ultimately President for 2 years.
I rejoined the workforce subbing in the elementary classrooms, then working part time as the front office assistant, moving to full time receptionist at McKinney High for 5 years before being blessed with the opportunity to join Murray & Mensch. I’m excited to be working in my field of passion and grateful for the chance to service our clients with all their accounting needs.
