"My team is cross-trained to serve the needs of all our clients. That allows us to provide unparalleled responsiveness. With what we do, immediate attention is essential. Our clients rely on us for guidance when strategic opportunities arise and they have to make a fast decision."
Tina helps growth-minded business owners make faster, better-informed decisions. It sounds simple—and to her clients, it appears that way—but that’s just part of the value Tina delivers. In reality, she takes accounting and finance tasks off the shoulders of small- to medium-sized business owners so they can focus on growing their companies, with the assurance that their financial information and processes are in good hands.
Tina gets the challenges that business owners face because she is one herself. Since 2010, she has served as Hamilton Tharp’s managing partner, overseeing all administrative functions and staffing. In 2008, Tina created the firm’s business management division, which provides an invaluable suite of services to growing companies. Built from her own foundation of consulting experience and financial management expertise, Tina’s team now consists of knowledgeable staff who are all equally dedicated to helping clients achieve their financial visions.
As a strategic partner to her clients, Tina helps identify the options they need to move their businesses forward. The areas she consults on vary widely, and they are not all accounting-related. Tina has helped clients with everything from accounting software conversions to multi-state office accounting, coordination and process improvements.
Tina’s unique background transcends public accounting and includes many years of private industry accounting experience – which includes time as a controller for the Latin America division of a large consulting firm in Chicago. There, she traveled internationally, setting up accounting offices, consulting and serving as a part-time CFO for a wide variety of privately held, emerging companies. She combines that knowledge with her experience as both a business owner and consultant to provide creative solutions that unlock hidden potential for growth and operational efficiency.
A San Diego native, Tina enjoys her coastal community, especially early-morning walks with her dogs, visiting the theater, and spending time with her friends and family. She volunteers for numerous local nonprofit organizations that support business, children and animals. Tina is a past board member of the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce and a past board member for the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation, for both of which she provides financial advice, leadership and fundraising support.
