I was born and grew up in Romania, at that time an Eastern European communist country. Since I was a child, I always wanted to travel, to meet new people and discover other cultures. In 2013 I moved to the U.S. This was my biggest wish. And here I am! I had the opportunity to visit a couple of wonderful places in Oregon, Washington and California during these years. I still have 47 more states left …
I hold a Bachelors in Economics/Business Administration and a Teaching Diploma from Babes Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
I have 18+ years of experience in accounting- public accounting, taxation, payroll and HR. I am also an Oregon Tax Consultant and an Enrolled Agent. Before joining Saturday Academy, I worked with a CPA, then I was an Accountant with Willamette International Travel- a travel agency in Portland- for 4.5 years, and a Master Tax Advisor with H&R Block for 2 years.
I love spending my free time hiking or exploring Oregon Coast. I also am a Blazers fan. In addition to English, I also speak Romanian and Spanish.
