Cal was born in Crow Agency, MT, and raised in Hardin, MT. His passion for many years was running my own business (Cals Conoco in Hardin MT) and working on all makes of cars. It was always challenging, as well as fun, keeping up with the new automotive technology, while building long-lasting friendships with all my clients. It was from my experiences as an owner/operator that I decided to go to college and further my education by earning an accounting degree. I graduated from MSU-Billings in 2002. With diploma in hand, I moved to Denver, CO and worked for the IRS for five years. While there, I gained significant experience in tax law before returning home to Billings. In conjunction with my experience in tax law, I wanted to do tax preparation. I started working for Jeanne Stecher in the fall of 2007. There is so much to learn about tax because the laws are always changing along with our clients. Its a pleasure to work for this small firm. And a plus when your employer and co-workers are great to work with.
Last, but not least, I love, love, love chocolate. No chocolate is safe around me. I eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and usually have a chocolate snack before bedtime. My favorite chocolate snack is chocolate-covered cherries; I can sniff them out from across the kitchen.
