In high school, I took a bookkeeping class. Each student was given a packet for a fictitious company with a list of a year’s worth of financial activity. Manually processing all of the transactions was supposed to take the entire semester … I was finished in one month!
After graduating from Northern Illinois University with a Bachelors degree in Education and moving to California, I enrolled in graduate school and earned an MBA in Accounting from Cal State Hayward. Completely comfortable in a business environment, I worked in the property management and accounting fields until 2013 when my sister, Marla Arcadi, and I combined our skills and expertise in tax preparation to purchase Bay Wide Tax Service.
I love it when my clients ask tax questions as it brings out the “teacher” in me. And when clients present complex business, corporate, and trust tax problems, I am once again delighted to be pulling it all together to tie up totals and balance all the columns.
