“Since launching our commercial service 18 months ago, LiquidPlanner continues to hit one important milestone after another and we are thrilled to have someone of Eileen’s stature join our team,” said Charles Seybold, co-founder and CEO of LiquidPlanner. “It takes a lot of hard work to build a profitable business in less than two years and the key is truly great people.

She has a BA in Business Administration from the University of Washington and holds a CPA certificate from the State of Washington.
