Sharon Atwood Bio

Sharon is a native Eugenean and earned her accounting degree from the University of Oregon.  Following graduation, she embarked on a 19-year career as an income tax auditor with the Oregon Department of Revenue working in Salem, Corvallis and Eugene.   After leaving ODR, she balanced her time between seasonal employment as a tax return preparer for two CPA firms in Eugene, attended many basketball games (and serving as team Mom) for her daughter’s basketball teams, and provided a high degree of support to her elderly parents as they aged in place and eventually transitioned to congregate-care living.  She also enjoyed intermittent participation on many recreational tennis teams over the years.

Sharon and her husband Scott retired to Central Oregon in late 2021, eager to explore the many outdoor opportunities in the area and spend quality time with their now-adult children currently living in Bend.  Sharon is joining the team at Devon Gaines CPA to provide seasonal assistance as a tax return preparer in 2024.
