“I look forward to opportunities to assist with client tax challenges, no matter how complex.”

I joined Johanson & Yau in 2016 after several years of experience both in public accounting and the construction industry. I provide tax planning and compliance services on behalf of individuals, families and privately-owned businesses. I am not afraid to work hard and know what it takes to keep a close focus on whatever details are most important for my clients.

I reside in San Jose with my husband and our cat. We enjoy watching the San Jose Sharks, especially live at the Tank, and finding new restaurants and breweries. When possible, we like to escape the city and travel to new places.
