Candace joined Claiborne Lavoie & Associates in 2005 and enjoys the diversity of clients she works with as well as the challenges that arise from assisting those clients with tax planning and business consulting.

She relocated to the mountain area from Southern California with her family in 1992 and graduated from Yosemite High School in 1994. She is an enrolled agent with the IRS and has over 15 years of accounting experience.

She likes to read and enjoys spending time with family and friends. When the opportunity arises she likes to explore the beauty and grandeur of the Sierra Nevadas.





 Kristina joined the Claiborne & Associates family in December 2014.

 She has a Masters of Science in Accountancy. She hopes to further her knowledge in the field to better help the mountain community. 

 She moved here from Kansas City, Missouri in 2005 and has loved every minute of it. In her down time she enjoys reading, traveling, and   spending time with her friends and family.






Taylor joined Claiborne Lavoie & Associates in 2022.  She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an option in Accounting from the Craig School of Business at Fresno State.

Taylor grew up in the Oakhurst area and married her high school sweetheart. After graduating from college, she followed her military husband to Alaska, where they adopted their twin boys.

Taylor and her family moved back to Oakhurst in 2017.  She enjoys hiking and exploring National Parks with her family, creating random spreadsheets, and volunteering in her community.



April is the newest member to join our team in late 2022 as our Administrative Assistant. You may recognize her from many of our financial institutions here in this beautiful mountain community.

She has made the mountain area her home for the past 20 years and plans on being here for the next 20 years. With her great customer service skills, expect to smile by the end of your encounter.

She has a 19-year-old daughter that she loves hanging out with, (when her daughter is talking to her of course), at concerts, going to their favorite city, San Francisco. Her hobbies include karaoke, roller skating, reading, and drawing.
