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.

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.

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.

Sandra O'Connor

As a military brat, Sandra O’Connor was born in Guam and was lucky enough to spend a lot of her childhood in San Diego, California. She and her family later moved to Murrieta, California where she graduated high school.
Sandra originally began her undergrad as a Biology major, but soon realized her interest in learning the language of business and love for networking. She soon changed her major to Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and graduated from California State University San Marcos in December of 2018.

In July of 2018, she had the opportunity to begin her career in public accounting as a Staff Accountant with Mike at Prudhomme Associates CPAs while finishing up her final semester at CSUSM.

Amanda Mitchell

Staff Accountant

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 Staff 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.

Amanda has a love for the outdoors and enjoys spending time sailing in San Diego, soaking in some leisure time at local Temecula wineries, or practicing her salsa moves on the dancefloor.

Kelly Noon

Receptionist

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 being the first smiling face that our clients see 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.

Kelly’s nature makes her a perfect fit to being the smiling face that our clients see; the kind, helpful voice that our clients hear over the phone, and the person capable of juggling all the tasks necessary to handle our front desk duties.
