Jackie Rahlf

Tax Manager

If you had asked me 40 years ago if I wanted to be an Accountant, I would have replied, "NO WAY, I hate math!"

But life has a funny way of leading us down unexpected paths. My journey began in the accounting department of a travel agency, where I discovered my knack for numbers despite my initial reservations.

When the travel agency was bought out, my boss left to start her own tax and accounting practice, but we always stayed in touch. Fast forward nine years, and she called me up with an exciting opportunity. She had landed a big account and needed help. Although I didn't have extensive accounting experience at the time, she knew I was a quick learner and had full confidence in my abilities.

For the next 22 years, we worked side by side, tackling challenges and growing the business together. In 2019, she decided to retire and sold her practice to Mike Goodwin. And here I am today, still passionately doing what I love—tax and accounting!

Beyond my work, I find joy in my family life. Spending quality time with my husband, three children, their spouses, and my six adorable grandchildren fills my heart with happiness. They keep me grounded and remind me of what truly matters in life.

Looking back, I never imagined I would find such fulfillment in a career I once thought I would dislike. But sometimes, life surprises us in the most delightful ways, and I couldn't be more grateful for the journey that led me here.
