Erika Thomson, CPA

Senior Accountant

Since 2016, Erika has been pivotal in managing client financials and taxes, using her consulting expertise to address complex issues. She specializes in creating personalized financial plans that empower clients to achieve their business goals. Erika is known for her calm demeanor, attention to detail, and strategic approach. 

Erika didn’t intend to go into accounting; she planned on pursuing engineering. However, when she discovered that her college didn’t offer the program she was looking for, she decided to shift gears and put her life-long love of math to work toward an accounting degree. In just four years, she graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Accounting from Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio. Erika is now a member of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and possesses a CPA license.

Originally from Rowlett, Texas, Erika now calls Portland, Oregon home. As a former college soccer player, Erika stays active in a variety of sports and never misses the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. A self-declared foodie, she enjoys trying new restaurants, cooking new meals, and visiting craft breweries. When Erika wants to engage her competitive spirit, she plays strategy board games, and when she gets restless, she loves to travel!
