Staff Profile: Rebecca Simpson

This month we want to introduce you to CPA and Senior Manager, Rebecca Simpson. Rebecca has been part of the Wicks Emmett family since 2005. She graduated from Eastern Oregon University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration in 2004 and earned her CPA license in 2011. In December 2017, she completed her Master’s Degree in Taxation through Golden Gate University. Rebecca focuses on estate and trust tax return preparation, as well as estate planning and research, and individual and business taxation. Her favorite part of working with estates and trusts is helping families through an otherwise very difficult time and taking some of the burden off of them. She says, “guiding the personal rep or trustee through the various tax filings and seeing the relief in their eyes when the job is complete is one of the most rewarding parts of my job”. Outside of work, Rebecca keeps busy with her two children. She loves traveling, cheering her daughter on at sporting events, and watching her son play in the school band and youth orchestra. She’s also a coffee enthusiast and can be found every morning (and afternoon) filling up at the office Keurig machine.
