Tina grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado surrounded by Pikes Peak to the west, The Garden of the Gods to the north and Cheyenne Mountain to the south. The mountains have always played a large role in her life. Their strength and power have been a metaphor for how she lives her own life and the energy she brings to her clients. Living in mountain towns taught her to understand the hard work required to live in beautiful places that some can only visit, and also to appreciate the value of work/life balance.
Working for small and large companies Tina gained valuable experience in cash management, finance, payroll, benefits and human resources. She also came to appreciate what feeds her soul the most is helping other people and making a difference in people’s lives. Mountainside Bookkeeping was born from an idea that by offering key financial services, with a personal touch, she could help business owners focus on what they do what they do best – running their business and generating profits. Tina’s past work experience has included ski resorts, rafting & fishing resorts, restaurants, automotive shops shuttle services and non-profits.
She is a graduate of Western Colorado State University with a B.A. in Comprehensive Accounting. A true believer in giving back to the community, Tina is on the Board of Directors of Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley where she also serves on the Finance Committee.
