About Dawn Schneider, CPA

Dawn Schneider has been a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for over 20 years. She was originally licensed in Florida, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Accounting. Dawn began her career with a big eight accounting firm in Orlando. She worked as an auditor on large publicly held companies in manufacturing, healthcare, publishing and other industries.

From there, she returned to her roots in Iowa and continued to practice accounting and tax for another International accounting firm. Dawn thoroughly enjoyed her years in public accounting as an auditor.

Dawn left the big firm environment to raise three children. During this time, she maintained her CPA with continuing education, and graduate course work. She also did temporary work such as teaching accounting at a community college and assuming controller responsibilities during a controller’s leave. She also enjoyed volunteering as Treasurer for a Parent teacher organization.

In 2000, Dawn began working with Individual and small business tax and accounting for a small local firm in Iowa. Dawn transferred the knowledge she acquired in her audit career to the small business environment.  This is the area that she has found a true passion for. In Iowa, Dawn began a partnership with a colleague offering tax and accounting services. Shortly thereafter she moved out of state for a temporary assignment. During this time she worked for Andover CPAs, in Andover Kansas. Since Arizona was going to be a more permanent location she was very excited to meet Ryan Stone and start a new partnership.

About Ryan Stone, CPA

Ryan began his career in restaurant management before moving into banking. These experiences helped Ryan realize how important financial accounting and tax is to individuals and businesses. This led Ryan to make the decision to go back to school and earn a masters in accountancy.

Upon receiving his masters degree, Ryan began working for a Chandler CPA firm while also providing tax software support for Intuit. Although Ryan enjoyed these positions, his goal was always to be an entrepreneur. It was during this time that Ryan and Dawn met. They shared a common goal of owning their own firm, similar work ethic and business values and felt they would work well as a team.
