Rebecca graduated from Kansas State University with a B.A. in Psychology in May of 2010. After working as a Outreach Case Advocate she quickly realized that social work although rewarding it was also emotionally exhausting. Returning to college she was able to tackle her next career, accounting. In December of 2013, Rebecca completed her Masters in Accounting from the University of Texas and passed the CPA exam in December 2015. While going to school, Rebecca was working and gaining experience in the field of accounting and taxation. She worked with business owners, set up accounting systems and managed their accounts payables and receivables. In 2014, she was promoted to Senior Accountant and became well versed in complex tax laws around business entities.
I am the owner and CEO of GMLCPA. I spend most of my time on the more complex parts in the accounting and tax areas for small business. I speak on the topics of accounting and small business. See my speaker bio page. In between everything that I do I have a wonderful family. We spend lots of weekends at cheer competitions and catching up from the week.
I coach small businesses and individual clients with all their accounting and tax functions. Whether it’s wrestling with the IRS or making your financials pretty I can help. I enjoy spending time with my family (which includes a yellow lab and two parakeets), hiking, listening to my favorite radio station, knitting, playing on the piano and baking.
