Claire earned her Bachelor of Accountancy degree in 1983 from the University of Mississippi - Go Rebs!
Claire began her career with her father's CPA firm in Tupelo, Mississippi after earning her degree. She had 25 years of experience in all types of tax preparation, small business accounting services and audits before she and her husband decided to relocate to Denver with their three sons.
A move to Colorado meant reassessing career priorities. Claire had worked with several nonprofits in Tupelo and had grown to appreciate their passion and dedication to their missions - good people doing good things in the community. So her first job in Denver was with a local CPA firm managing audits and 990s for nonprofits. In 2009, Claire accepted an offer to join another Denver firm as the partner in charge of the nonprofit organization practice.
In late 2017, Claire had the opportunity to start her own practice. With some wonderful clients and a supportive family, she opened her doors in January 2018. Claire remains focused exclusively on providing audit and 990 preparation services to nonprofits.
