This year (2019) marks Stephanie’s 15th season in providing tax services to the public as a tax advisor and preparer. Before that, she had worked for a number of years gaining bookkeeping, customer service and management experience, while she was attending school, but had only dabbled with the preparation of tax returns on a limited basis, and just for her friends and family. 😊 Stephanie gained a ton of her actual tax experience working for many years in the tax department of a large MN CPA firm. In 2014, Stephanie transitioned over to independent tax and consulting work. Stephanie also worked for a number of years with her mother-in-law Carol, as a key tax and technology advisor and to help offer a succession plan solution option for Carol’s clients upon her retirement.
Steph lives less than a mile away from the office with her husband Tim and their three-legged dog Lucy.There are very few moments for “fun”, outside of work, in between client work responsibilities and deadlines and reading accounting publications to keep up with changes! But Steph does enjoy cracking subtle jokes and admiring all of the ironies and satires that the world has to offer. From time to time you may also find her playing on and managing various softball and volleyball teams. She also loves attending Rock-n-Roll music festivals and concerts and being active outdoors and spending time with friends and family, boating,fishing, hunting, or watching baseball.
