Susan Brooksbank is a fiduciary who provides accounting support for attorneys and fiduciaries. She is a retired mechanical/electrical engineer who worked in the vibration test industry for 30 years, with a BS in mechanical engineering, MS in electrical engineering, and an MBA. After retiring from the corporate world, a CLPF acquaintance suggested that Susan help with her accounting, since Susan has a knack for numbers and is a happy camper with spreadsheets. The fiduciary taught Susan the basics of probate accounting and handed her one of the fiduciary’s most complicated cases. That was about 3 ½ years ago and Susan has been doing accountings since.
