Our story is your story
To call someone a cerebral thinker, is to say that they make decisions based on intelligence and careful thinking, rather than emotions. You could say that cerebral thinking is exactly how this all started.
I grew up in a family of physicians… and then I married one.
The first three months of my husband’s paycheck were going straight to the IRS.
Those hours were lost.
Emotion fired me up to do something, but cerebral thinking enabled me to put my worries to the side and focus all my efforts on delving deep into the tax strategies that would allow us to keep more of our hard earned money.
I set up Cerebral to support medical professionals and business owners struggling with the same worries.
We’re not the financial people you’re used to hearing about.
“The level of support we needed.”
“We found Alexis through the White Coat Investor website and it has been a completely different experience. We felt very comfortable with her pretty quickly. As we worked with her further, it became clear we were finally getting the level of support we needed. She responds within a day by email and is available via video or telephone conference, if necessary, usually within a couple of days. She has been professional and knowledgeable about the tax process and she is genuinely a very nice person. We finally feel like we have the tax support our family needs with her. She has been a pleasure to work with and we appreciate her help and expertise. We highly recommend her!”

Founder & Lead Tax Strategist
I love getting to know my clients and educating them on the ways to use the tax code to their advantage. The moment their face lights up with understanding and excitement about ways I can help is worth each and every minute I spend working. Also, my clients are genuinely nice people, which makes them really enjoyable to work with.
When I’m not working or writing books, I love spending time with my horse, Bernie. Although I don’t get out to ride him much with four kids, a business, and a household to run- even getting to groom and love on him is therapeutic. And of course, I also love spending time with my family.
Tax Compliance and Operations Manager
I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at Southern Illinois University in 2006. I have been an Enrolled Agent since 2013, and I have worked with healthcare providers for the majority of my 16 years in public accounting.
Taxes are my jam! I love the complexity and the challenge of strategizing to help my clients save tax dollars. I genuinely enjoy getting to know the clients I work with and building those relationships.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband and our two children. I am an avid reader, often reading over 60 books a year.
Accounting Compliance Manager
Growing up in a family of both parents accountants, numbers have always been a normal topic of conversation. My mother was a CPA and I grew up helping her and watching her every day do what is right for clients. With 2 bachelor’s degrees, Accounting and Finance, and being a CPA for 12+ years, serving my clients and helping them achieve their financial goals is my purpose.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three daughters playing board games and traveling with our family.
Tax Compliance Senior
I love the world of taxes. My love for mathematics has naturally led to a career in accounting. Since 2012, I’ve been an Enrolled Agent and helped many businesses and individuals with their tax compliance needs. After more than a decade of working in this field, the thing I love most is the opportunity to truly help people. As the Tax Compliance Senior at Cerebral, whether it’s giving guidance or helping people meet their financial goals, I give my clients my best.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Jon and our three children. We like to go to the lake and explore the nature trails around our home in Maine. In my free time, whether it’s playing computer games or playing cards, I’m always up for some friendly competition.
Tax & Bookkeeping Associate
Everyday at Cerebral Tax Advisors I’m learning new things. It’s a pleasure getting to know our clients. They’re all great people with interesting and different backgrounds. I’m daily inspired to work harder to serve them well.
Outside work, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching baseball.
I currently reside in Western Massachusetts. I had previously been the practice manager at a medical practice for over 24 years. I am excited to start a new chapter in my life as the Administrative Lead for Cerebral Tax Advisors. I look forward to working with all of our clients.
“Most cost effective solutions!”
Cerebral is the missing piece to my business. Alexis helped me put in financial controls and helped source the most cost effective solutions to my daily business. All the while, her team has been meticulously cleaning my books to make sure that every transaction is properly logged so that I have a clear look at the success our business is having. I could not be happier with Alexis and her team. Hiring her was the best decision I’ve made as a business owner.
