Michelle worked in accounting and auditing before starting her tax and bookkeeping business in 1996. In 2015, she joined the Athlon Tax Services team. She works with business and individual clients on a complete range of tax matters — including preparing tax returns, retirement plan funding, tax planning, maintaining tax records, and consulting with businesses and start-ups. Michelle believes the best part of her job is knowing she has helped businesses and individuals navigate their way through the tax law while helping to reduce their tax bill.
Michelle is a graduate of West Virginia University and is an Enrolled Agent. This means she successfully passed a two-day exam focused on income taxes and the Internal Revenue Code, maintains continuing education standards, and is licensed at the federal level to prepare tax returns and to represent client interests before the IRS. While she’s not in the office, Michelle spends her free time reading and cooking new and different foods. Michelle has traveled to the United Kingdom, France and Canada and hopes to take a train tour across the United States and Canada.
