Hi I'm

I’ve been married to my best friend Joe for nearly 22 entertaining years. We have one son Joey (19) a very talented musician in his second year of college (They just grow up too fast 😢).
We also live with a spunky energetic Brittany Spaniel named Siri; she’s my sidekick.

I love the idea that anything is possible, and every day is a new beginning.

I have 15+ years of experience in the tax and accounting world. I hold an MBA in Accounting and am a Certified Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor, and an IRS Enrolled Agent (EA). I founded Bastian Accounting by myself in March of 2013, and I cannot believe how we have grown since then.

I pride myself on continuously improving self-reflection and growth are the two most powerful tools we all have. I’m beyond motivated by watching our clients succeed and reach new levels. Client relationships are everything! ❤️️

I adore this team at Bastian Accounting and the culture we’ve developed. To work every day with a team and clients I love is beyond anything I ever imagined. I’m so grateful and fulfilled in ways I never knew were possible.

A few of my favorite things....

  • The first sip of coffee in the morning.
  • Traveling, taking in new cultures and cuisine.
  • Disney, Peloton, and Jigsaw Puzzles
  • Teen Angst Drama (Dawsons Creek, Felicity Etc)
  • The Twilight Saga (#AllOfIt)
  • A good Margarita (on the rocks)

My husband Ethan and I have been married for almost three years. We have one sweet one-year-old daughter named June. We also share our house with a crazy yet lovable husky named Sadie, who resembles a wolf (which we are told multiple times every time we walk her). 🐺

I’m inspired by all of the incredible women in my life, especially my Mom, Mother in Law and sisters, who are strong, funny, and incredibly smart.

I spent over 13 years running the business and financial side of a very successful music recording studio here in Philadelphia. I love working alongside creatives to help them with their passions. I also have certifications in Quickbooks Pro Advisor and Preparing Individual Tax Returns.
I’m motivated by our all-female team. Together we empower our clients and relieve the stress of their finances so they can live out their dreams.

A few of my favorite things....

  • In no particular order: June, Ethan, Sadie
  • Coffee
  • Yoga
  • A Good Book
  • Traveling (my favorite place so far is Iceland)
  • Vacationing in the Catskills with my family every year

I grew up in Milwaukee, WI, but in 2019 I was ready for a change and moved to Houston, TX.
Moving to Houston has been the best decision I have ever made.

I have been a cat mom for 18 years, and I brought my baby girls (cats) with me to enjoy new life in the big city.
My cats were sisters, Shadow and Saphire.
Unfortunately, we lost Shadow (age 16). So now it’s just Saphire (age 18) and me, and she runs the household around here.

Although I moved from home, I still have so much support from family and friends, making me cherish life even more and realize I have a bigger purpose in life than just living.
I studied Finance in college and began my accounting journey in 2014.

I’m so honored to be part of this fantastic team working with incredible women that love what they do while being amazing at it.
I’m eager to keep growing and learning.

A few of my favorite things....

  • Catering to my Saphire
  • Binge The Office and Harry Potter 1 million times
  • A nice glass of sweet red wine
  • Traveling to new states to explore
  • Houston weather between March – November
  • Enjoying time with my close friends

I’m currently living in Texas in a cozy little apartment with my fiancé Juan (we’ve been together since our freshman year of high school!). Although it’s just us for now, we hope to adopt a kitten of our own in the near future to keep me company while I’m alone most of the day working from home.

I initially went to school for a degree in computer science, but after experiencing what the accounting field was like and how fulfilling it was, I switched my major and never looked back! I love what I do now, and I’m grateful for the opportunities that have come my way because of it.

I’m proud to be a part of such a fantastic team and eager to work with our clients and make a difference in people’s lives!

A few of my favorite things....

  • Online gaming with friends
  • Creating art while listening to podcasts
  • Pumpkin iced chai lattes 🎃
  • Online shopping
  • Farmers markets early in the morning
  • Road trips with family
