“Trust is the key element of a successful long-term client relationship.”

I joined Johanson & Yau in 2019 with over a decade of public accounting experience. My primary areas of expertise focus on tax compliance and planning, accounting advisory services for high-net-worth individuals and families, real estate partnerships, investment funds, start-up companies, and trusts & estates. 

I enjoy and thrive working closely with clients and their outside advisors with the common goal of producing positive outcomes. I recognize that trust is built over time, and it is with great enthusiasm that I pursue this goal. 

I live in San Jose with my husband and two children. We enjoy camping in the summer and skiing in the winter, traveling and experiencing new cultures.
