Staff Profiles


Lorie C. Sdringola Marini, EA
Enrolled Agent

Lorie C. Sdringola Marini started Quiktax Services in 1994. She has done everything from bookkeeping, payroll, consulting both for individuals as well as for new businesses, to audit representation. Her tax expertise, EA (Enrolled Agent) certification, and years of experience has gained her over 500 loyal clients. As a 1st generation Italian, Lorie treats her clients like family and it isn’t unusual for her last clients for the night to get a plate of salami and crostini along with a glass of vino.

Her wealth of knowledge, exceptional character, and vibrant personality keep her clients and their referrals coming back year after year.

During the off-season, she is always available remotely, as she loves to travel the U.S. in her 40-foot motorhome, with Rusty, her rescue Kelpie, who can be seen (and heard!) during tax season, as the office Mascot.


Gretchen Ludvigsen
Tax Preparer, Bookkeeper

Gretchen Ludvigsen has been the most recent addition to the Quiktax Family, joining us in 2013, shortly after she attended college with Michael at Sacramento State University, where she graduated with Honor’s achieving her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.

She has proven to be a great addition to the team, starting as a personal chef, receptionist, and now bookkeeper and tax preparer. Her management experience and education, provides an efficient office structure that keeps the team on task. Gretchen also believes in the power of small business and that using selective controls and tools can empower small businesses to run efficiently so they can prosper in the marketplace.

During her time off, Gretchen and her husband enjoy spending time with their family, both in Northern California and the East Coast as well as visiting friends and traveling abroad: exploring new destinations and revisiting familiar spots, such as their favorite place…Florence, Italy.


Andrea Decieco
Customer Relations

The fabulous English born gal, Andrea wears many hats, both figuratively and literally. She helps Quiktax during tax season by assisting in client relations, organization, and keeps the office nice and tidy. Her positivity and contagious laugh brightens the office even when stress is high. She is an integral part of the Quiktax team, and we are lucky to have her.


Rusty Marini
Office Mascot, Best Friend
