As a UK citizen, raised and educated in the US (besides a few years in Canada during her youth), Louise faces many of the same tax issues Dyke Yaxley’s clients are looking to address. This first-hand experience, coupled with her 20+ years working in the accounting field, allows her to provide unique insight and empathy to her clients.
Louise began her career in the accounting field as a generalist, later narrowing her focus on tax, with a specialty in estates and trusts matters. Working with her individual, business, and not-for-profit clients, she helps them address the tax issues they face on their tax returns. She has a personal interest in her clients to help them get the optimal results for their unique tax situations. Louise also collaborates with clients as they wade through the personal priorities and concerns associated with estate and trust matters, probate filings, and fiduciary reporting, which carry different long-term implications.
She graduated from California State University at Los Angeles with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an accounting focus. Louise is a licensed CPA in Virginia and a member of both the American Institute and Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants.
Louise’s hobbies include creating designs for knitting, crocheting, and cross stitching as well as exploring the beautiful Shropshire countryside.
