By working with family-owned businesses, I’m able to advise and help clients in a variety of aspects of their businesses and personal lives, including bookkeeping, business tax, and personal tax planning and preparation.
What do you enjoy most about working at Flagel Huber Flagel? I enjoy the personal relationships I am able to build, both internally with co-workers and with our clients. I view accounting as much more than just numbers. The importance of those relationships was never more evident and important than in the last year with all of the challenges everyone has faced.

My free time is primarily spent enjoying activities with my family including anything from my kids’ school or sports, going to the park, or visiting a zoo or museum. I also enjoy following local sports and getting in the occasional round of golf when time permits.
