Hi, I’m Monell, a wife and mother of 3 kids and 2 cats. I enjoy bowling with my kids and going to the movies.  My bucket list is to travel around the world with my husband when we retire. I am currently in the process of completing the EA exam. My goal is to have all 3 tests passed this year, 2019.

My love for tax preparation began when I was on active duty helping young active duty members doing their taxes for the first time. My experience and knowledge of insurance, pay and allowances combined with my knowledge and expertise of tax allowed me to provide a more thorough tax planning portfolio for them in the future.

My goal for all my clients is for you to be able to complete your tax return with as little ease and stress as possible.
