Ms. Schwader is a Madison, SD native who earned a BS degree in Business from Northern State University in 19

88.  She has three sons, two of whom are Diesel Tech graduates of Lake Area Technical Institute and one who is a student at Dakota State University.  She is owned by a friendly Weimaraner named Roo who likes to sleep under her desk and collect treats all day long.

Ms. Schwader personally puts her experience to work on every tax return, which number over 600 annually.  Specializing in tax preparation allows her to focus her training and education on those issues that matter most to clients.  Of importance to her is helping clients pass the family business to the next generation, realizing that succession planning and estate planning are not the same thing.

Dani and her family split their time between the farm near Howard and their Wyoming cabin.

Jane Materese and DaNeil Olson, are the kind people you talk to on the phone.  Jane is entering her fifth year while DaNeil is in her second tax season with the firm.  They handle all scheduling issues and assist clients with picking up tax documents and answering questions.  They proofread every tax return, checking for data entry issues, before each return is prepared for client signature.  We could not function without them!
