What a Year It Has Been!

… I think we say that every year.

I think we all had hoped COIVD would be a term we’d no longer be using, but unfortunately, that just wasn’t the case. Although it’s still prevalent, and while there has been a lot of bad news in the media and heartache in our personal lives, we have still witnessed a lot of good in the world. It is encouraging to see folks step-up and find a way to continue working together and doing good in light of many challenges.

We’ve honestly had an incredible year here at Senter, CPA. We’ve been busy assisting clients, contributing to our communities, and growing our team. We are now a team of 5. Wow! That’s hard to believe in less than 4 years.

We definitely contribute our success to our wonderful clients who value our services and who have been quick to tell their friends, family, and colleagues about us. We value the work we do and consider it our duty to add value to our clients and to be a contributing part in our communities.

As always, we want to extend our sincere gratitude for the overwhelming response from our amazing clientele. Because of you, we were able to overcome all obstacles, and continue to grow and flourish as a firm, and as a team, in service to our community. We are very grateful.

The Senter Family

Our family is doing wonderful. Mine & Cassie’s 3 wonderful children are growing too quickly. Ben (14), Waylon (5), and Charlotte (3). We are a wild bunch and never boring. It’s fun!

Ben is into guitars, Waylon is into video games, and Charlotte, well she loves her kitty cat toys.

Our year consisted of hard work, a few trips to Tennessee to visit family, a few trips to various places up north, weddings, as well as the normal activities of work and school.

We work hard but play hard.
