Clayton Fields, EA, MBA: Principal Accountant:

I have spent my career helping clients understand the pros and cons of business strategies and what they can expect when navigating through tax situations.

I attended Drake University where I majored in Chemistry and Psychology. After Drake, I attended the University of Colorado Business School.  After graduation, I started working for banks as an analyst and project manager in the Denver Tech Center Area.

When our son was born, we moved back to the Midwest, and I joined the Internal Revenue Service. After ten years of working for the IRS as a Frontline Manager and Instructor, I opened an accounting firm. My expertise includes knowledge of Federal tax law, GAAP, accounting systems, and business entrepreneurship.

I have served as the Principal Accountant and/or CFO for over 200 companies since starting this firm.  I am passionate about Entrepreneurship and running businesses.  It’s my calling.

In my free time, I like to focus on my family, exercise, and travel.

Lisa Fields, CPA: Accountant-at-Large:

I am an accountant, hobby farmer, and mother of two beautiful kids.

I’ve been married to my college sweetheart for over 25 years. 😊

I have a Masters of Taxation (Tax Law) from the University of Denver.  I started my career as an accountant working for one of the Big 4 Accounting firms. For most of my career, I’ve worked for venture capital firms and technology companies. I have worked for millionaires and even billionaires.

I help with peer reviews and large projects. I am currently helping to develop a charitable organization for homeless women in Wisconsin.

I kept my day job and I am currently the US Controller for a multinational pharmaceutical company.
