He has over 16 years of experience in public accounting and another 5 years with privately held companies, including owning a landscape and design company. His experience outside of public accounting has equipped him with many tools to assist small business owners. Developing strong relationships, communication, and trust are keys factors in his success with the firm.

During his time away from work, you may find Sean at his hunting land near Floodwood, MN or watching his daughters participate in their various sport activities. He has recently joined a Master Swim program and swims two to three days a week.

Tom’s favorite part of working as a CPA in public practice is getting a chance to meet with clients and help them manage the financial and tax aspects of the various circumstances that life can throw our way. Tom takes a hands-on approach to identifying and solving problems as a capable, trusted adviser and works hard to build solutions for our clients that go beyond the standard approach.

Tom graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree from St. Cloud State University as a double-major in Accounting and Business Economics and resides in the St. Cloud area with his wife, Noel, and two young daughters.

Audra Bird, RAP, ARA

Registered Accounting Practitioner, Accredited Retirement Advisor, Registered Tax Return Preparer

Audra joined our firm in August of 2012. She has 30 years’ experience in public accounting. During her career, her primary focus has included small business accounting, payroll taxes, and corporate & individual tax preparation, and QuickBooks.

She completed her AAS degree in Accounting from Anoka Ramsey Community College. She is recognized with the MN State Board of Accountancy as a Registered Accounting Practitioner (RAP) and also as an Accredited Retirement Advisor (ARA) with the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation.

Janelle Haynes, Office Manager and Executive Assistant

When Janelle re-entered the work force in the early ‘90’s she chose the clerical/secretarial profession. Since that time she has had the unique experience of being employed in several different arenas, such as media specialist in an elementary school, an office manager of a small forklift company, and the last 8 years as an administrative assistant and support specialist for two different CPA firms.

What she finds most satisfying about her job is the personal contact she has with our clients, developing a trusting, respectful relationship with them. Working within public relations can be challenging and she looks forward to the challenge.

When Janelle is not at work, you may find her entertaining her many grandchildren, camping with family or friends, reading, or out in her wood shop upcycling old furniture. The most important role she plays, though, is that of a diehard Green Bay Packer fan. Go Pack!
