Imagine what life would be if you weren’t worried about

According to a recent Capital One CreditWise survey, 73% of Americans rank their finances as the most significant source of stress in their life. 

And as we all know, this emotional toll that is specifically related to money can disrupt a lot more than just our bank accounts. Financial stress can also lead to anxiety and depression as well as have a serious impact on our physical health. 

Now think of some of your biggest dreams in life. Consider what your life would look like if you never had to worry about what is in your bank account

Financial freedom is the key to unlocking this extraordinary life. 


Mission Possible

The Running Valley Financial mission is to create transformational, lasting change in the lives of everyday people and families by helping them win with money. 

Giving People Power and Peace Over Their Finances

Growing up on Running Valley Farm in North Dakota, I learned the value of community, partnership and hard work. It seemed fitting when I started my business, that the farm should be the business’s namesake. Through Running Valley Financial Associates, I partner with my clients to give them a sense of financial clarity and peace as well as to impart confidence through tools and financial education.

I hold a Bachelor of Accountancy from the University of North Dakota and obtained my MBA from the University of South Florida. I also completed extensive training in financial coaching and have been an active CPA for over 20 years. Running Valley Financial Associates offers several services to meet your needs, including financial coaching, small business consulting, and tax preparation.

My financial coaching clients are often people who are earning good money but can’t seem to make the progress they would like towards reducing their debt or increasing their savings. Life hits with the unexpected, and I help them create security that unforeseen expenses or family vacations do not need to derail their financial progress. I also offer the wrap-around financial service of tax preparation for individuals and small businesses. A Certified Public Accountant licensed in Florida and North Dakota, I can serve clients back home in North Dakota as well as where I currently live in Florida.

A little more about me

When I am not helping people maximize their financial resources, I love staying busy with community volunteer events and family. The United Way and Feeding Tampa Bay are causes close to my heart. Traveling, enjoying the outdoors, and supporting my children’s sports are other ways I pass my leisure time. 

Are you ready to run with Running Valley Financial?

Rumor has it...

I used Running Valley Financial for my personal and small business tax preparation and it was an amazing experience. Not only was it simple to upload my documents but also went over my deductions and caught a few I had been missing the past couple years resulting in a better return for me. She was professional and super knowledgeable. I'd recommend her and will be filing my taxes through Running Valley next year.

I didn't have a good experience with my previous CPA and had to switch. Carrie is a CPA that DOES worry about clients and works with them to make sure their questions get answered. She really took the time with me to go over everything. Her great customer service and professionalism really makes a difference when working with a CPA.

Last year my accountant made taxes complicated, and seemed too busy to truly help me even when I made  appointments. This year I'm so thankful to switch to Running Valley Financial because everything is simple and easy to understand!
