With over twenty years of accounting experience and licenses in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Florida, Sali has the background and knowledge to help you understand your financial concerns. She is a detailed-oriented accountant with extensive background in small business and individual income tax preparation.
While raising her family in southwestern Wisconsin, Sali returned to college and found her forte in the field of accounting. In 2002, her career began in a small public accounting firm where she was able to work directly with the CPA that owned the firm. That CPA mentored her for 5 years while she worked through the exam and obtained her license. With that license Sali thought she wanted to pursue a career in private accounting. After a year, though, it was clear that public accounting was her only true love. She returned to public accounting, working for multiple firms of varying sizes until the time came for her to start out on her own to see where it would go. Thus, TAP Consulting, LLC was created.
Sali lives in Trempealeau, WI with her husband, Lonnie. They have two grown children, Ashley and Alex, and adore being grandparents! Community involvement has become more and more a part of her life as she serves on the boards for many area not-for-profits.
