Suzette was born and raised in Stanislaus County in the state of California where she completed a bachelor science degree in Business Administration with specialization in Accounting. She continued her studies for Master of Science degree in Taxation after moving to the Bay area.
Raised in a pastoral family home in the small town of Salida, California, Suzette chose to study business administration and accounting after prayerfully reflecting on a need for financial and accounting advice by the many leaders of small community churches and non-profits. After living and studying in the Bay Area, she chose to return to a quieter, slower paced life, and moved back home and acquired a job at a local cooperative egg processing plant, performed the accounting for her local church, and was nominated into its board. Later, she obtained a managerial position at Medical Ambassadors International (MAI), and under the mentorship of the then CFO, Michael Carroll she became proficient at fund accounting and non-profit reporting including the federal 990 tax returns.
In 2006, she became Controller, and fills the position of Chief Financial Officer. Suzette assists National church leaders, Bishops, pastors, accounting managers, and administrative assistants in setting up church policies and procedures for applying for tax exemption. She is a knowledgeable Board Treasurer for her local church, Apostolic Temple.
Suzette is a strong advocate for encouraging young students to continue their education with a commitment to living an acceptable, sacrificial life for Christ.
