Caroline began working in accounting in her first jobs after graduating High School. She paid her way through college by working in accounting for Gaines Electric Supply in Long Beach and going to Long Beach Community College and California State University Long Beach part time until graduation with a BA degree. In the mid 1980’s Caroline started her own small business, CD Bookkeeping, and with referrals from CPA firms that she had worked with during her years working at various companies, obtained clients who needed part time work by a qualified outside bookkeeper. Since that time, she has worked as Controller and/or Bookkeeper for many small companies, managing Bank Accounts, Insurance, Payroll, Contracts and sometimes as Office Manager or Secretary as well. In 2004 Caroline began working for Advantage CDC as a part time Bookkeeper and became Controller in 2015. She finds the work at Advantage CDC challenging and fulfilling and enjoys the work environment.
