Message from Cathy

I believe neither taxes nor accountants should be seen as scary!  They shouldn't be avoided!  I provide quality services by being approachable.  I welcome and encourage all questions from my clients. No one should be afraid that the meter is always on.  I believe each client deserves my attention and should feel that they are being treated as my only client.  I strive to make taxes and accounting understandable. 

Over the course of my professional career, I have been lucky to have the opportunity to work in the accounting departments of large corporations as well as for larger accounting firms.  Although I enjoyed and met the challenges of the work, I came to realize that this was not the environment for which I was best suited. 

I believe it is important to give each client my individualized attention and my maximum effort.  This could include going a step further with my research to spending extra time with you on the phone or in person to ensure clarity, understanding and positive results.  It is extremely important to me that you feel confident and highly satisfied with the services provided by Caldwell, CPA.  I am, after all, working for you!
