A sought-after brewery industry finance and accounting expert, Maria grew up in South Carolina. Before she became a CPA, far-flung interests took her to the College of Charleston, where she earned an Arts Management degree and launched her first career in the radio and music industry.
Honoring a lifelong love of business, Maria then earned a post-baccalaureate in Accounting from Linfield College shortly after moving to Oregon. Over a decade, she worked as a tax accountant, founded a successful accounting business that served the alcoholic beverage industry, spoke at countless brewery conferences, and recently authored Small Brewery Finance (available October 7, 2019).
We couldn’t be happier to have this dynamo at Perkins & Co as our newest Client Accounting Services Principal. Here, you’ll find her digging deep to help clients solve problems and build better businesses—that is, when she’s not teaching classes, taking in a concert, admiring professional photography, or traveling the world. There’s little Maria hasn’t done, and undoubtedly far more she has yet to do.
