     I started my career in accounting at a local firm here in Akron, Ohio. In a four year window I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in accounting as well as a Master’s degree in accounting with a focus on personal and small business taxes. Currently, I am pursueing even greater aspiration with the accounting world.
     I got in to the field of accounting to help people, so for the past 6 years I have been putting those skills to good use. For 3 years I worked for a Fortune 100 company and was an integral part of their Accounting Department. While continously working and learning, I wanted to find a way to help up and coming businesses keep more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. During my time in college, I excelled in accounting, both academically and professionally. My main focus was on the tax aspect of accounting as it was something that everyone needed and it provided instant gratification. So I decided during one tax season to start helping some friends and family and my passion for helping others only grew.

   Watching the worry on people’s faces turn to calm happiness as I helped them through a stressful time, better known as tax season, is one of the best rewards I can receive. Being able to be face to face with clients and do something I truly enjoy was the main driver when I considered starting my own business. I enjoyed the tax aspect of accounting so much that I asked a good friend, and fellow Akron graduate, if he would like to go in to business, and Tanner-Gill & Associates LLP was born. 

    One of the qualities that I pride myself on is my ability to connect with anyone. I have over 10 years in the hospitality industry which has only solidified my love for helping other people. This has strengthened my ability to provide my clients with superior customer care during stressful times. I am able to put them at ease during these times by explaining to them the many ways taxes can work to their benefit.
