She started her public accounting career in 1988 at Trollinger & Company, the predecessor to Thompson, Hughes & Trollinger, P.L.L.C. After nine years with Trollinger & Company she accepted the position of Chief Financial Officer with the Washington Speakers Bureau. During her tenure at the Washington Speakers Bureau she implemented a new accounting system, and assisted in the sale of the company to Omnicom, a publicly traded company. After 3 years of corporate accounting Renate returned to public accounting to accept a partner position at Trollinger & Company.

Renate has gained a variety of experience and is particularly experienced with resolving IRS and state tax issues; preparation of business, non-profit and individual tax returns; and preparation of audits, reviews and compilations of business, non-profit, and retirement plan financial statements. She believes a CPA is a valuable business advisor to small business owners and can provide invaluable advice in business decisions concerning the purchase/sale of a business, succession planning and financing options.
