Professional Profile

Thanks to her experience working with corporate executives, families and business owners on individual and corporate tax planning, Erin was selected to help develop the Anders Family Wealth and Estate Planning Group. A dedicated partner in tax, she works with families and individuals on individual and corporate tax planning, wealth transfers, stock option planning and business transition planning. She also has extensive experience in the preparation of tax returns for public charities and private foundations. She earned the Personal Financial Specialist credential (PFS) from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), which distinguishes CPAs who specialize in personal financial planning. Two highlights of her career are being named to St. Louis Business Journal’s 30 Under 30 and an MOCPA Women to Watch Emerging Leader.
