Todd Skinner, CPA, Principal

Since he was 13 years old, Todd knew he loved accounting and numbers. He graduated early from high school just so he could get on with his career, receiving his Bachelor in Science and Masters of Accountancy from Brigham Young University. Following his education he sat for and received his CPA certificate, which, aside from his charm, got him the job at Ernst and Whinney in Los Angeles. He now uses his super powers and 30 years of experience, at his own bidding, as his clients' trusted advisor handling their numbers so they can focus on the bigger picture. Todd's true love is giving back to the local community serving on the board of a New Leaf, and as a Co-Founder of Lucky Sevan impacting and shaping youth. He is a member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Arizona Society of Certified Public Accountants. When Todd is not in the office or at home with his laptop cracked to look at the latest figures for his clients, you'll likely find him spending quality time with his wife and two granddaughters, on the prowl for his next new culinary experience, playing Scrabble with family and friends, or planning his next excursion overseas.
