Dominique E. Kurth, CPA
Dominique came to work at Schneiter & Moad in July of 2018. She grew up in Anchorage and moved to the lower 48 in her early 20s to capture adventures living in Utah, Oregon, and Hawaii. During the late 90s, she returned to Anchorage for a couple of years and was hired as a receptionist by a local CPA. She left for Oregon again, but in 2003 returned permanently to Alaska after concluding there is no substitute for the abundant opportunities our great State provides. After a few years of working a variety of jobs and building a bookkeeping client base, she decided to return to college to secure a more stable career with upward mobility in accounting. She graduated from UAA in Spring 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Accounting and Finance. She excelled in her studies and was inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma, an international business honor society that recognizes top-performing students. Dominique was active in the Accounting Club during her time at UAA, serving as Vice President for one term, encouraging and mentoring younger students along the way. In June of 2018, she became a licensed CPA in Alaska. She kept in touch with that local CPA throughout her early career and time at UAA. He pushed her to achieve more, a bachelor's degree instead of an associate, and then to go even further to meet the requirements to become a CPA. Eventually, she was rewarded with her license and a position working with that local CPA, Mark Schneiter. Full circle, 22 years later, she is learning about providing boutique tax advisory services to small businesses and their owners in our community from one of the most knowledgeable CPAs in our State. Mark’s example of perseverance and dedication to our profession continues to push Dominique as she follows in his footsteps and becomes active in our local CPA society, keeping her on track while our profession grows and adapts to the challenges faced by our profession in the years to come.

Sandra L. Quinones
Sandra Quinones joined our firm in December 2016 as our Receptionist/Administrative Assistant.

Sandra spent many years working for a law firm in downtown Anchorage before working just as many years for a local beverage/liquor distributor in midtown and then landing here at Schneiter & Moad. Sandra enjoys being creative (arts, crafts, sewing, photography, you name it) and has spent many a summer Saturday selling her creative wares at the Muldoon Farmers Market.
