Bryan is a math teacher at TVHS, Roger is a fire captain at Pechanga Fire Department, and Matt is a supervisor with the Southern California Gas Company.  Michael’s mother retired from the TVHS Hungry Bear after nearly 32 years of feeding the Valley’s teenagers and Michael’s father retired from Southern California Gas Company after a 35 year career. 

Michael is married to his beautiful wife Kelly with whom he has three daughters. In Michael’s spare time he enjoys spending time with family, biking, coffee shops, the beach, and traveling.  Believe it or not, taxes and accounting is a core passion for Michael as well.

Michael Noon began his accounting career in San Diego with one of the four largest accounting firms in the world, Deloitte Tax, LLP. Deloitte is consistently ranked as one of the top ten best companies to launch a career. Michael worked in Deloitte’s tax department serving high net worth individuals and their trusts, multi-state and foreign corporations, and large real estate developers. In 2006, Michael returned to his hometown to work with local CPA firms and became a partner with a local firm in 2016. In 2019, Michael founded the accounting firm Noon & Associates CPAs, Inc.   

Michael has extensive experience in handling income tax, payroll tax, sales tax, gift tax, and property tax matters and has worked with many local, multi-state, and foreign C-Corporations, S-Corporations, Partnerships, LLCs, Trusts, Estates, Individuals, and Exempt Organizations (nonprofits) throughout the Inland Empire, and San Diego and Orange Counties. His primary areas of responsibility involve tax compliance, consulting, tax projections, buying and selling businesses, offers in compromise, and Internal Revenue Service and Franchise Tax Board representation for audit/exam.

Dixie Minnesang
Dixie Minnesang

Office Manager

Dixie Minnesang worked with Mike Noon at the prior firm for the last eight years and is thankful to be part of his team as Office Manager.  She brings her ‘customer-first’ attitude and attention to detail to Noon & Associates CPAs.  Her background includes administrative, marketing & accounting support for a multi-unit restaurant group, a real estate development company, and her husband’s horticultural business.

Her primary responsibilities include coordinating clients’ tax returns, managing accounts receivables, and general support to the accounting staff. She is dedicated to excellent client service and facilitating the growth and success of the firm.

Having lived in Temecula for 30 years with her husband Dave, Dixie is thankful that her adult daughters and parents all live within minutes.  With two grandsons under two, any day might include family time, which is her favorite pastime; others being gardening, camping, traveling, and sharing a good Cabernet with friends.  Family, faith & the importance of volunteering has always steered her free time and she attributes this to her joyful spirit.

Scott Thompson, CPA

Senior Accountant

Scott was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles. After high school he worked his way through junior college and eventually eared a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from the University of California, Santa Barbara. After college he started a construction company with his father Larry. In the late 2000s it became clear that the construction industry was no longer capable of affording Scott the opportunities that he wanted for himself and his family. In early 2011 he returned to school, studying Accounting at the University of California, San Diego. He finished the accounting program in late 2013 and immediately began his accounting career.

In his first accounting position Scott gained experience in the areas of auditing, focusing on school districts and other governmental agencies and taxation. In 2015 he joined with Mike Noon in order to further hone his taxation skills and to gain broader experience conduction audits and attest engagements with a wider range of clients and industries. By late 2015 he had passed all four sections of the CPA exam and by early 2019 he had finished all of the educational requirements and is now a licensed CPA. In his position of Senior Accountant with Noon & Associates, Scott is focused on taxation of individuals, partnerships, corporations, and non-profit organizations, as well as audit and attest engagements of various business entities and non-profit organizations.

Scott and his beautiful wife Lynnette became residents of Temecula in 2007 and love being a part of this amazing community. When he is not working Scott enjoys spending time with his wife and two wonderful children Owen and Abigail. The Thompson’s enjoy suffering through the disappointment of being long-suffering Los Angeles Dodgers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish fans. They also enjoy travel and their travels usually take them to Hawaii, the awe-inspiring landscapes of the American West, or wherever the Dodgers happen to be playing. They recently purchased a travel trailer and hope that will lead to even further travels (though trips to Hawaii may be a little difficult). Scott is also a self-proclaimed retro videogame and sci-fi/fantasy nerd and is working diligently to ingrain the same nerdiness in his children; most likely to the chagrin of his wife. Finally, the Thompson’s enjoy being active members of their church and do their best to serve whenever possible.

In 1993 after becoming a licensed CPA, Kelley moved to Santa Monica, where she lived 5 blocks from the beach, to work for a mid-size local CPA firm which specialized in high net worth individuals. It was here she began to specialize in tax and gained a vast amount of experience. In 2002 she received her master’s degree in taxation from Golden Gate University.

Catie Scrima
Catie Scrima

Bookkeeper

Catie was born and raised in Murrieta and graduated from Murrieta Valley High School sometime after Britney Spears hit the scene, but before the iPhone dropped. She married her best friend, Andy, who still makes her laugh, even twelve years and four kids later. Now Andy and Catie are living their best life in Montana, where there is more than enough space for her boys (Drew, Liam, Keith, and Eli) to run around, and enough property to entice family and friends from California to come visit.

Catie wears many hats—wife, mom, PTC treasurer—she truly is a renaissance woman. But between juggling her busy household and volunteering, she also works remotely doing bookkeeping for our office. She is the magical “elf” who quietly services your accounts on a monthly basis to ensure that all your records are up to date and balanced. So even though you may not see her, if your ledgers are balanced, then you know Catie’s been there. She has enjoyed her job with Noon & Associates CPAs so much that she’s also planning to add another hat in the very near future: A graduation cap! Catie is working towards her Bachelor’s Degree as she pursues a future career in Accounting.

Catie spends her free time caring for her beautiful property, hanging with her boys, hiking, kayaking and playing volleyball. (Just kidding, she doesn’t have free time.) But she does enjoy a good challenge, and she is soaking up as much as she can in this new career.
