“Everything starts and ends with trust.”

I have been with Johanson & Yau since 2003, focusing on our accounting and audit practice. My specialization is in financial statements, primarily audits and reviews for closely held businesses. As a trusted advisor, I help clients make informed decisions that benefit both the financial and operational sides of their business.

I am also fluent in Mandarin and lead our expanding cross border and Chinese services. To learn more, please select your preferred language: |

I live in Sunnyvale and enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and our dog, Sparkle. I am a proud supporter of the 49ers and take an analytical approach to winning in fantasy football.
