Kathryn Jacobs is the owner and operator of Umbrella Bookkeeping LLC, and she began her work as the finance administrator for Moonridge Group and The Moonridge Foundation in July of 2017.  


Kathryn was born in Arizona and moved to Las Vegas in 2007 to pursue Culinary Arts.  She graduated from the Art Institute of Las Vegas with an A.S. in Culinary Arts, and a year later from UNLV with a B.S. in Hospitality Management.  After graduating, she opened her own catering business in Las Vegas, serving high end parties across the valley.  At age 23, she and her older brother opened Bobby D’s BBQ, a full service restaurant in Jerome, AZ, and the #1 rated restaurant on TripAdvisor in the Verde Valley to date.  It was through Kathryn's studies and early career as a restauranteur and private caterer that she realized her affinity for accounting.
