Heath’s journey into the accounting field began with an internship at a reputable CPA firm in 1994 while attending California State University Stanislaus which has led to a very successful and flourishing career. He attributes his family owning a business to his success because he got to see all the aspects of the family business and planning – the good and the bad.
