“I wanted to have a career involving numbers. I chose accounting my senior year of high school and have never had a second thought. I still love it and can’t imagine doing anything else.”

Julie Hicks was born and raised in Arizona with strong ties in the Phoenix and Prescott areas. After attending Peoria High School, she chose Arizona State University so she could stay in this “ideal” climate.
After taking her first accounting class in high school, Julie knew it was the career for her. What she didn't learn in that class is how much she would love devoting her accounting expertise to all of her clients. Julie's favorite part of her job is the challenge of finding all of the missing pieces when preparing tax returns.
Julie worked in accounting while attending college and then shortly after graduating went to work with Jerry Molfetta and Karen Roberts. In 2003, when she returned to her career after taking a ten year sabbatical to stay home with her two daughters, she came to Linsalata & Co. part-time to work once again with Jerry and Karen. Now that her daughters are grown, Julie is now with the firm full time.
In her free time, nothing makes Julie happier than entertaining, cooking, and baking for friends and family. Julie also loves to hike, read, play games and watch sports. Her most visited vacation destination, Huntington Beach, includes all of her favorite things -- the ocean, the sun, and Mexican food!
