Favorite part about working at Flagel Huber Flagel:  Flagel is a firm that values its people and celebrates their achievements both as professionals and as individuals. The firm places a high value on work life balance which speaks to my active lifestyle outside of work. The people at Flagel are genuine and authentic team members who truly want the best for their clients and for each other.

Area of expertise at Flagel. What do you help people to do?  Family & Closely Held Businesses – I have the privilege to add value to family and closely held businesses and impact clients in meaningful ways every day. By taking care of their tax needs, my clients are able to focus on the areas of their business that got them into the business in the first place.

Favorite way to spend your time:  I love traveling, biking, mountaineering, snowboarding, photography, and spending quality time with family and friends.

What is your personal/family life like? My husband, Cameron, and I are always looking for our next adventure – whether it be a fun trip, a new physical feat, or a nice bottle of wine.

Fun Fact: Last year, Cameron and I summited the Grand Teton mountain at 13,775 feet in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. We are hoping to climb another mountain this year in Argentina’s Patagonia region.

 Favorite movie/band/musician/TV Show?  Seinfeld and Survivor
