Raised in Crookston, Minnesota, Rachel currently lives in Glyndon with her husband, Josh, and their two children (with #3 eagerly anticipated in July of 2022). She loves Glyndon for the many opportunities that the community has to offer. “If you are bored, there is always something fun you can find to do,” she explains. Outside of work, Rachel’s life primarily consists of keeping her children alive and happy, but in her occasional free time she enjoys tending to her large garden, hunting, and spending time with friends and family.
Rachel joined Fiebiger, Swanson, West & Co (FSW) as an associate in 2012, shortly after graduating from college. She later became a member of Brady Martz via its merger with FSW. Today, she serves as a senior manager and helps to lead the Tax Department at the firm’s Fargo office. She works with both local and regional businesses in a variety of industries. Rachel specializes in performing tax and business tax planning, tax preparation, succession planning, and IRS and state representation.
A focused and driven professional, Rachel’s excellent mentorship, leadership, and organizational skills make her a valuable member of the Brady Martz team. She seeks to always treat her clients the same way she would want to be treated, were she in their situation. Already on the road to a career in accounting, Rachel was inspired to specialize in tax by one of her college professors. She attributes her success in the accounting field to never hesitating to take on a new opportunity.
