Brandy Marrou was raised in Dubois, Wyoming.  Some of her fondest memories include the seven years she spent living on the Bitterroot Ranch, a dude ranch where her parents were caretakers.  It was here that she developed a love for animals. Brandy's passion for animals remained strong, and she attended the University of Wyoming with a declared major in pre-veterinary medicine.  However, after two years Brandy changed her major and, in 2000, she graduated with a B.S. in Accounting with a minor in finance.  Staying true to her small-town roots and wanting to remain in Wyoming, Brandy began her career as an associate for McGee, Hearne & Paiz, LLP (MHP), where she remains today as one of the Firm's newest Partners!

During her career, Brandy has gained experience in a broad range of attest engagements and has served clientele in various industries, including government, not-for-profit, construction, higher education, and employee benefits. While providing timely and quality client service is of utmost importance to Brandy, she is also very passionate about people development and devotes a significant amount of time mentoring and developing the Firm's staff accountants.  In doing so, Brandy is instilling the Firm's values of honesty, integrity, quality, and teamwork in each individual in whom she invests.  Brandy also desires to help women accountants find that delicate balance between a successful career in public accounting and attending to their personal life.

Brandy is active in our community and beyond.  She serves as Board Treasurer for K9s for Mobility, United Way of Laramie County, and Funding the Future, a financial literacy non-profit.  She also serves on the University of Wyoming College of Business Advisory Board.

Brandy's husband, Steve, a taxidermist and avid hunter and fisherman, is also a native of Wyoming.  They have two children, Trevor and McKenna, who keep them very busy.  Both children are well known at the MHP office and know which Partner's office to visit to find the candy stash.  Outside of attending school and sporting events for her children and spending time with her family, Brandy enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, and traveling to see family and friends.
