Stanardsville Virginia United States, 22973
I have a B.S. in Accounting (1987) and an M.S. in Taxation (1997), both from George Mason University. I am a licensed CPA in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 1992. I started working for the Federal Government in 1983 when I was a junior in College. I worked full time and went to school full time at night to get my degree. I started working as a clerk-typist for the General Services Administration were I waspromoted to an Accounting Technician and was responsible for among other things, paying the monthly telephone bill for the entire non-DOD federal government. I then was hired as a Budget Analyst by the National Archives where I prepared and maintained the annual budget of all the Presidential Libraries and the Federal Register. Once I had my accounting hours, I went to work for the Office of Naval Research as an Accountant. I was responsible for paying and monitoring the status of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI or “Star Wars” accounts). Strange bit of trivia, I also funded a DARPA project one of the Navy Captains I worked with said would revolutionize the world in about 10 years, at that time called “Arpanet”. I didn’t invent the internet, I just paid the bills for it!
