Lynndale Elementary


I have lived in and around Lynnwood most of my life.  I graduated from Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood as did both of my daughters.  My first job was with the Lynnwood Library, which was followed by employment with Winchell's Donuts (yum!).  Next, I worked for a Lynnwood CPA firm, and then I worked for my uncle's landscaping company as his accountant as well as installing playground equipment at South Lynnwood Neighborhood Park and watering trees that are still part of Alderwood Mall.  I went on from there to work at various businesses in their accounting departments and in 1987 began my own accounting firm serving small businesses and individuals.  Along the way I raised two amazing daughters, Denise and Janine, primarily as a single mom.
