Before joining DWC in 2015, Rachel worked for various accounting and advisory firms in the Denver metro area and as a bank examiner for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. During her 18+ years in public accounting, Rachel has worked with multinational businesses and small companies just getting started.  Rachel’s expertise is in real estate development and investment, state and local tax, international tax, family-owned companies, risk management, and estate planning. She specializes in several industries, including real estate, constructionfamilies and high net-worth individuals, and trusts and estates. Rachel also assists clients with financial planning and has attained certification with the American Institute of CPAs and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants in risk management and insurance planning.

She spent one year of college at the University of Edinburgh and had four roommates from different countries (Spain, France, Italy, and Greece) that she got to visit. She is mom to three “rowdy” kids who play soccer and swim, and she loves to read. Her dream after retirement is to write a novel.
