Michael has lived in the Temecula Valley since 1984 with a family that is heavily involved in the local community. His three brothers all serve in different capacities within the Valley. 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.

Amanda Ghironzi

After raising her two amazing children in Murrieta, CA, Amanda realized it was time for a new challenge. She took her love of math and finding solutions to problems and applied it to her studies at California Baptist University, graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting. She brings her focus and determination for success into her position as a Senior Accountant with Noon & Associates CPAs and is excited to keep learning in the ever-changing tax world!

She knows that nothing worthwhile comes easy and strongly believes that her carefree spirit and energy will help promote trusted relationships, both internally and with clients.

Kelly Noon
Kelly Noon

Staff Accountant

Kelly was born and raised in Canyon Lake and is a graduate of Temescal Canyon High School. She attended Azusa Pacific University and earned a Liberal Studies degree in Education. Kelly used her degree for 11 years as a substitute teacher throughout the Temecula/ Murrieta area. Eventually, Kelly realized that she had a higher calling and decided to be a stay at home mom for her three beautiful daughters: Krislyn, Addie, and Brooklyn (“Coco”).

Kelly has a heart for caregiving, hospitality, and service. Her thoughtful nature makes her a great wife, caring mother, and an amazing friend.  When she is not helping team members of the firm or tending for the needs of her family (which, lets face it, does not leave her a lot of spare time), Kelly enjoys taking part in exercise classes, family bike rides, spending quality times with friends, and spending as much time as possible at the beach.

Krislyn Highsmith

Krislyn was born and raised in Southern California and graduated from Temecula Valley High School in 2017. She attended University of California-Santa Barbara and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Brain Sciences in 2021.

After college, Krislyn had the opportunity to explore the accounting industry while she navigated post-graduation life back home. She now resides in San Diego and regularly commutes into the office. In her downtime, you can find Krislyn exercising, at a Padre game, or exploring all San Diego has to offer.

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.
