New Board Members!01.12.15

We are pleased to announce that there are 4 new nominees for the Idaho Guardian and Fiduciary Association’s Board of Directors! The Members of IGFA will be taking an official vote at our next monthly assembly meeting in January. If you would like to participate in the official vote, you must become a member to do so. Below is a brief bio from each candidate.

Robin A. Cook, CPA
Robin Cook is the sole owner of Personal Accounting Solutions, LLC – a practice that focuses on conservatorships and fiduciary accounting. In the course of her career, she has been a certified public accountant for more than 25 years, primarily focused in international accounting. While this career path offered many opportunities to travel to numerous other countries and experience their cultures and enjoy new cuisines, personal family experiences opened the door to new challenges and she is now focused on working with individuals and their families. It has been an amazing journey of meeting positive caring people throughout the eldercare and healthcare industries and the realization that you make a difference in someone’s life every day is so rewarding.

Robin is a native Idahoan and attended schools in Boise, graduating from Boise State University. She has very strong ties to the community and has been very active over the years volunteering with organizations such as The Idaho FoodBank, Drug-Free Idaho, ZooBoise, Friends in Action, Paint the Town, Rake-Up Boise, Friends of the Library, and the Boise Senior Center, and others. She was a member and treasurer of the Beaux Arts Societe, worked with AARP volunteer income tax assistance, is very involved with JAVA (Justice Alliance for Vulnerable Adults), the Idaho Guardianship and Fiduciary Association, is treasurer for HAPPEN, and serves on the board and is treasurer for the Friendship Clinic, which offers free healthcare for non or under-insured lower income families.

Robin and her husband, Miles, enjoy white-water rafting, camping, golfing, and traveling when they can get away. Their family consists of 2 golden retrievers (quite spoiled!) and many nieces and nephews that enrich their lives.
