I have been managing our firm and serving clients in this capacity since founding the firm in 2006 and have been practicing in public accounting since 1989.

I am a CPA and shareholder at Casey Neilon. In this role, I work with many small businesses and their owners. I love that this gives me the opportunity to go beyond just being a tax preparer or auditor. The long-term relationship that develops encompasses the roles of business advisor and trusted confidant. I have been serving clients in this capacity since 1997. My experiences have taught me that I am not Wonder Woman, nor do I have a crystal ball, but many people have no background in accounting and finance, and they need someone that they can trust to help them navigate a path to reach their goals.
