Laura knew she wanted to be an accountant at an early age. She watched her father, a small business owner, struggle due to a lack of strategic business planning and advice from his CPA. He eventually made a switch to a proactive CPA and business advisor and it made a world of difference for his business, his personal life, and his tax bills.
Based on that early life lesson, Laura followed her calling by earning a Business Degree with an emphasis in Accounting and a minor in Economics from Portland State University in 2001 and started her career in public accounting that same year. She joined the Irvine & Company team in 2013 and has been an invaluable addition. Laura enjoys working with a variety of clients and industries by assisting them with complex tax issues.
In her free time, Laura’s focus is being the World’s Best Auntie to her niece and nephew. You can often find Laura busily working at her desk while buried in a pile of Amazon boxes full of presents for the sweet kiddos in her life.
