Hi, I'm Tanya.

I joined Larson Gross in 2001 and am now a part of the firm’s ownership group. I lead the firm’s tax practice and our business advisory services, where I concentrate on integrating compliance and advisory services to ensure the greatest benefit and impact for our clients. My primary focus is serving owner-operated businesses with tax planning and a wide variety of consulting topics, including budget and cash flow planning, profitability analyses and ownership transition planning.

Most recently, I have led the firm’s effort on understanding and advising businesses on the Paycheck Protection Program and Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans made available through the CARES Act in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

I’ve been actively involved in the community for many years. Currently I serve on the boards of the Nooksack Valley Scholarship Foundation, Nooksack Youth Football and Nooksack Valley Youth Basketball. Me and my husband, Tyler, live on a 12-acre hobby farm with our four kids. I enjoy caring for our orchard, photography and relaxing with friends.
