Staff Profiles

Tom Nicholas

I have been a CPA for 37 years and my experience includes working for international and local CPA firms and Co-Owner, CFO, and General Manager of business for 20 of those years. I opened my CPA firm in 2008 and specialize in business consulting and tax planning for small businesses and individuals.

My philosophy is to do the very best job for all of my customers and I enjoy assistant management in gathering the information to make informed business decisions. Throughout my career I have been involved in many situations that have given me a good base of knowledge to be a trusted advisor.

I am also very busy in my personal life. I am married with 3 children and 4 grandchildren that take me on camping, fishing, hiking, and skiing adventures that keep my personal life as busy as my business life. Whether I am fishing on the ocean, skiing deep powder, hiking up a mountain or taking a road trip through Alaska, I enjoy life and the people who join me in our adventures.
