Lake County Certified Public Accountant

The Certified Public Accounting Office of Joan Sturges, located in beautiful Lake County, California, was founded by Joan Sturges in 1978. My firm provides the full scope of forensic accounting, auditing/attestationtax services and accounting/bookkeeping.

I recognize that the selection of an accounting firm is one of the most important financial decisions that an individual or business will make. The firm you select should be available year-round to assist with any financial decisions and act as both your business advisor and advocate.

Throughout the years I have earned a reputation for providing exceptional client-centered service and consistently exceeding client expectations.

My office is located on the shores of Clear Lake on beautiful Soda Bay. Clients are encouraged to visit the office to discuss any plans, concerns, or changes to financial and tax circumstances.
