About me

I’m not just a financial pro who specializes in divorce. I’m also a divorcee myself.

You can read my story here.

I am a Certified Public Accountant, Certified Financial Planner™ professional, and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® professional with over 19 years of industry experience. My extensive background spans financial planning, investment management, divorce planning, estate planning, risk management, and tax planning and compliance.

My expertise—and my passion—lie in helping women to achieve financial success, particularly women who are divorcing. I’m a strong advocate of empowering women about money; my mission is to help women overcome the unique challenges they face to successfully achieve financial security.

I received both my undergraduate degree in Accountancy and my Master of Taxation degree from Arizona State University. I founded Bridge Financial Strategies in 2009 and Bridge Divorce Strategies in 2012.

Originally from Denver, I’ve called the Valley home for more than 27 years.
