WHAT INSPIRES YOU, INSPIRES US.

Andrew J. McDirmid, CPA

In my opinion, the most rewarding part of our job is helping our clients work toward financial independence. Our clients look to us to assist them with making some of the biggest financial decisions of their lives, and it is an honor to have the opportunity to service them.

Part of enjoying the day-to-day activities of Andrew’s career requires him to care of mind and body so he is at his best at work. Andrew lives in an area full of recreational opportunities and four wonderful seasons. In the spring, summer and fall, it is pretty common to find him, or a group, cycling at lunch or after work. With the abundant rivers and lakes around the Spokane area, it is pretty common to find Andrew and his wife fly fishing on the weekends or spending time with their daughters on the lake. During the winter, the family enjoys snow skiing at one of the many ski resorts in the region.
