Brenda Elliott, CPA has been at McGee, Hearne & Paiz, LLP since 2002. She started her career with us as an auditor and transferred to the Tax Department in 2008. She has risen to the ranks of Senior Manager while perfecting her client service skills in all areas of taxation.

"I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my role in the Firm, but serving our clients, training and mentoring staff and assisting them with their career, and researching and applying tax law are my favorite."

"I truly enjoy the complexity of tax law and trying to interpret and apply to client situations. Every day there seems to be new challenges to address…," she says.

Brenda has experience in the taxation of individuals and various business entities, C-corporations, Sub-chapter S corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and trusts. She also has experience in estate and gift tax planning engagements. Because of her start in audit, Brenda also utilizes a broad range of audit skills to benefit our clients. Additionally, her approach to staff development ensures her knowledge and expertise are passed on to the entire staff.

Our staff appreciates her approach to teaching others. Delivering the minimum or even the status quo is never an acceptable approach for Brenda. Erin Nuland, one of our Tax Associates shared, "She has been very encouraging during my first year as a Tax Associate at MHP and always willing to answer my questions, and she is willing to give me projects that are very challenging and push me to grow and learn constantly."

Brenda is very active in our community and her service to the Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne reflects that. As the past Treasurer and current President, she is never one to sit and watch things happen.

When away from the office, Brenda and her husband Bob, both avid team ropers, stay busy with their horses.
