Prior to joining Raetz and Hawkins, she was a small business owner and manager, which provided her with first-hand knowledge of many of the issues small businesses face. Prior to her work as a small business owner, Bo worked as a Senior Staff Auditor with Arthur Andersen LLP. The breadth of Bo’s experience and her ability to work with a diverse clientele makes her an excellent resource and advisor for clients and an invaluable asset to the firm. Bo finds the opportunity to work personally with clients to assist them with tax-related issues and concerns to be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of her job at Raetz and Hawkins. She is an advocate who truly cares about her clients.
