Melissa has worked in residential and commercial property for twelve years. During those twelve years, she discovered a love that would take her journey into a new direction, the love of numbers! During six of those twelve years, Melissa worked on the financial service side of things. After having her second child, Melissa transitioned to a stay at home mom, running businesses online, just to stay busy. Once the kids got older, Melissa went back to work and is now sharing her passion for numbers with us here at Grandfield Tax.
Sierra had spent four years developing talents at one of the most chaotic work environments, Walmart. She became known as the “fix-it” person; she wore several hats over those years including 2 years in the ever ebb-and-flow of personnel, as the personnel coordinator. When she is not spending time with our family she is committed to her own family always looking forward to either baking or traveling.
