Melinda S. Phelps, CPA

I started my own firm because I wanted to not only have an avenue to utilize my talent and create an inclusive environment, but most importantly, keep the focus on what’s more important….adding value to client needs. Some firms are too focused on generating revenue that they are willing to forego other important aspects to maintain strong relationships with clients.

A native Detroiter, I attended Grand Valley State University and majored in Finance. After graduating in 1995, I started my career as a licensed stockbroker which I practiced for almost nine years. I returned to graduate school and received my MBA in accounting from Walsh College in 2005. I relocated to Houston, TX in 2007 where I started my career as a state tax consultant, working in Big 4 accounting and in industry for the next nine years. I decided to bring my practice back home to Detroit to be close to family and, hopefully, add value to my community with my specialized tax services.
