Who We Are

About Chrystal

I was born and raised in Greenville, Michigan, and moved to Virginia in 1997 to attend Liberty University. I fell in love with the mountains and the milder weather of Virginia and moved here permanently in 2006. I spent 15 years working for various CPA firms gaining valuable experience in the field of public accounting. It had always been a dream of mine to someday own and manage my own CPA firm. In 2015, that dream became a reality when I partnered with Charlotte Allen, EA, who had owned her own tax office in Bedford, VA for over 40 years. Charlotte introduced me to the wonderful people in Bedford and for that I am forever grateful. Charlotte retired in 2017 and I acquired her firm. 

Numbers have always made sense to me. My career is based on the ability to see things in numbers that are not always obvious to other people. I love to use my passion to help others with their tax and accounting needs. I am thankful for the people in my life that have had a part in making that dream possible.

The staff here are the lifeblood of this firm. They are truly the best at what they do and I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside them. They provide close, personal attention to all our clients and believe in the value of relationships.
