Who We Are

Liz is a CPA (Nevada and Arizona) by day and an adventurer by night. She graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree with majors in Accounting and Finance (in 3 years because, why not).
Liz also went to Arizona State University for a Master’s degree in Information Management to satisfy her continued curiosity of technology and innovation. Throughout her career she has worked for national firms, a local firm and now focuses on running Rebel Rock as CEO and Shareholder.
Liz sits on a bunch of boards, speaks locally and nationally frequently, and is always active, especially in the technology startup community in Phoenix. When not in Phoenix, you can find Liz traveling the world and enjoying different cultures. She spends her free time with her husband and young son finding all the adventures and visiting anywhere she has never been before.
Melissa (Barker) Diaz
CFO + Shareholder
Melissa has worked on a wide range of accounting and audit services across the southwest and internationally, with a specialty in the healthcare industry.
She is a shareholder, and CFO and Rebel Rock, where she assists clients with GAAP compliance, financial modeling, financial reporting, and general financial accounting inquiries.
She is currently the loving mother to two step-children and three dogs. If you’re in search of a good conversation topic, she could go on for hours about dogs in general (but particularly hers). Also sloths. Her passion for each is only rivaled by her love of travel.
