Vickie is the ninth out of eleven children, a mom of seven and grandmother to five. Her family is everything. She was blessed to be a stay at home mom for 13 years in AZ. Her family then moved to NM where her and her husband bought a screen-printing business and ran it together for 15 years. running a business can be stressful! Lucky for her, she knew QuickBooks and taxes and was able to take care of all of their accounting. So that helped relieve some of the stress. While also running this business, she worked for a tax & accounting firm doing bookkeeping and taxes for 8 years and found many native friends in both of those industries! The even taught her a little Navajo, (Hello) and shicheii (Goodbye grandma and grandpa).
In the summer of 2015, her family decided that UT was going to be their next adventure. They moved on a whim, and it has been a blessing every step of the way. In her spare time she likes to sew, bottle foods and binge watch with her husband of 36 years. She's proud of the fact that she is organized, and able to juggle work and home life well. Since moving to Utah, she has continue to expand her knowledge of bookkeeping and taxes through side jobs with individual businesses.
She enjoys accounting, people and she doesn't shy away from a challenge! She says that it gives her the opportunity to learn more about taxes! At her prior job she was always the one who got the "difficult ones". By getting these though and not turning them away, she gained so much knowledge just jumping in feet first and figuring it all out. She was the person in the office who took on all the IRS audits, and cleared almost every one of them. It was a great feeling of accomplishment.
"The Tax Trio has now given me the opportunity to join a great firm, with great clients. I'm excited about this new opportunity."
