Denise is a senior accountant and has been providing business advisory and tax services to clients of Milhouse & Neal, LLP spanning all the way back to 1997. She brings decades of public accounting experience to every client relationship. Small business owners face a full range of challenges. As a business grows, different problems and opportunities demand different solutions – what worked a year ago, may no longer be the best approach. Denise specializes in helping small and mid-size companies with the necessary level of accounting support needed to help them make informed business decisions to improve their overall performance and overcome the common pitfalls associated with growth.
She develops long lasting relationships with her clients and provides them with critical information and insights needed to be able to plan effectively. Rather than just respond to client requests, she takes a pro-active approach to inform clients of possible changes and helps them analyze the business implications and provides recommendations for efficient and effective solutions to ensure financial stability.
Additionally, Denise has seen almost every mistake a non-accountant can make in QuickBooks and knows well how to get the books corrected in a timely and cost-effective manner. As a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor she assists businesses in the set-up, training, and accounting software consulting needed to help them implement processes to ensure performance accountability. Denise is regularly sought out to facilitate with special projects and she enjoys that her diverse role provides her the opportunity to help others.
Denise received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from Lindenwood College – St. Charles, Missouri. Although it is not required of her, each year she strives to exceed the annual requirements of the Continuing Professional Education program of the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants.
Anyone who meets Denise is immediately drawn to her cheerful personality and it’s no wonder that her clients and team members love her. Her warm personality coupled with her compassion to care for and help others is well noted by the entire M&N team. She is known for her generosity and big heart and is notorious for being the first one to support a cause when there is need.
