Angie has a bachelor’s degree in accounting with minors in Economics, Organizational Behavior and Coaching. She did her graduate work in Education and Educational Assessment, with an emphasis on Secondary Education in Business. She then taught high school for 5 years and helped develop curriculum in Business Law, Budgeting and Personal Finance for High School and College classes. She coached Softball and Volleyball during that time, along with continuing Accounting and Tax work for a few businesses and clients.
Finding teaching to be everything and nothing as she thought (Kids great – Admin and Parents not so much) she returned to her original professional path of Accounting and Tax work. She worked for H&R Block training and supporting their managers, developing curriculum and classes for them. She then worked in public accounting with several different firms, developing and refining her love of taxes and fighting the IRS for her clients and becoming an Enrolled Agent Fellow trained in the intricacies of audits and tax code.
Finding that working for the larger firms sometimes kept her away from clients and the personal part of accounting that is the most fun for her, she opened her own business with one of her colleagues in 2009. After growing that business to over 500 clients, she was asked to join the team at Apply in 2018. Bringing her 35 years of experience from all of the above into her work here, she is now the executive director of HR.
Angie loves history, numbers, and spreadsheets; an avid reader who also loves to write, her retirement in a few years hopes to manifest writing a book on healing from trauma, helping people to find hope and strength through the journey. Either that or a cool non-fiction thriller!! She is a passionate golfer and fan of most all sports and outdoor activities. She is a girl who will camp in a tent, 4-wheel throughout the day and then cook a gourmet meal over the fire. She is currently living in Hawaii, 100 yards from the beach and ocean she loves. Kayaking, snorkeling, and boogie boarding are weekly activities she can now enjoy all year long! But her greatest love and joy is to be an Aunt to 11 nieces and nephews, 25 grand-nieces and nephews and 2 great-grand niece and nephew.
