Brigitta Strand, Principal is a graduate of UC Berkeley's business school, and is a CPA with a Master's Degree in Taxation from Golden Gate University. She has worked with businesses, individuals, trusts and estates for over 25 years. She thoroughly enjoys the challenges of our tax system and helping her clients find solutions to the problems they encounter, find ways to implement the interesting ideas they come up with, and plan for the growth of their businesses and their own financial future.

Although tax season does infringe on her favorite sport (skiing), the rest of the year is wide open for traveling and hiking. Gardening on the weekends and attempting to learn to play golf (the greatest game on the planet, according to her husband) fills what is left of her free time.
