About Us

Silene Walters, CPA

Silene Walters, CPA, MAS

I formed my own accounting firm with a single principle in mind: to provide the highest level of personalized client service possible. Because of the relationships I am able to build up over time, I care about each of my clients, and will go the extra mile to handle your interests with integrity, responsiveness, and accuracy.

You will never have to worry about random, unknown staff members accessing your confidential financial information, or deal with novice accountants who lack the experience to give you the best advice. My highly personal approach ensures that my clients have grown with me, and that I have acquired the special understanding of each client’s needs that can result only from long, personal acquaintanceship.

If you need just a simple tax return, I’m there for you…and if you need a trusted business advisor to help you maximize your tax strategy, grow your business, and plan your long-range finances, I’m there for you too.

Give me a call me any time to discuss your tax and accounting needs. As a long-time resident of Rochelle myself, I’m always happy to assist the local community and your initial consultation is absolutely free.

I have a Master of Accounting Science from Northern Illinois University, am a Licensed Certified Public Accountant in the state of Illinois, a member of the Illinois CPA Society and a Quickbooks Certified ProAdvisor.
