An entrepreneur at heart, Laurie’s first business was a housekeeping service for vacation rentals in the Colorado ski area that she successfully founded, managed and eventually sold. After returning to her roots in the Napa Valley she earned her accounting certificate from Napa Valley College and started a bookkeeping service with a concentration in the construction industry. In 1988, Dave Wildhagen and Laurie partnered to open the first Payroll Masters office in Fairfield, servicing her existing clients. Laurie is the immediate past president of the Napa Women’s Club Evening Edition. She enjoys walking, hiking and exploring the hills of the Bay Area.
