Michelle Layer joined the team in July 2013 and brings 15+ years of experience in business tax, accounting and advisory to the firm. She provides support to the tax department while looking for ways to improve the experience of both clients and staff through CarlsonSV operations. This includes learning about new technologies in the industry and applying efficiencies to workflow and communication. Michelle has also worked hard to transition the firm’s culture toward more flexible scheduling, focusing on family and mental health for team members while sustaining productivity and client service.

Michelle received her Bachelor of Science degree in History and Sociology: Law, Criminology and Deviance from the University of Minnesota and her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls.

“I am really a fan of the simple things in life: time with family at the cabin, catching fish or playing cards, is what I look forward to after busy season.”
