Fabietti, Hale, Hammerstedt & Powers is an accounting and business consultancy. We do tax preparation, tax planning and business valuations.

On the planning side, we do business-succession planning, buying and selling businesses, estate, financial and retirement planning.

The firm was established more than half a century ago in Atlantic City and later moved to the township.

We visit our clients usually on a monthly or at least quarterly basis to perform accounting services and develop a good partnership. We get time to discuss business issues, and planning for tax or financial purposes.

I'm involved with compliance on tax return filings, and I review all of the filings of the firm. Last year I reviewed about 200 such returns, for accuracy, correctness, efficiency and filing requirements.

I also manage, train and develop staff members for various tasks. Right now I have about 25 business clients I either personally serve or manage the team that takes care of them.

I played a major role in implementing processes and procedures in transitioning to the paperless environment we work in now.

Entry: I started here right out of college in 2001 as a staff accountant. I worked my way up to accounting tax manager, and then recently was promoted to associate partner.

Through my education and experience I've gained a good understanding of businesses and their goals to promote profitability and their need to reduce tax liability.

Career goals: I'd like to continue on the partner level and at some point become a named partner.

About me: I like spending time with my kids, and that's a busy part of my life outside of work.
