Our Team

Aaron P. Sipherd, CPA, CFP, MPA

Aaron believes in knowing his client’s personally and what matters to them and their family. He prides himself on developing long term relationships that add real value to his client’s financial lives.

Aaron earned his Master’s degree in professional accountancy from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in 1995. He spent the first 5 years of his career in the international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche leaving as Manager in the tax department. During that time he developed an interest in personal financial planning and also earned his CFP designation. Aaron has over 20 years of experience providing tax and accounting services to individuals and small businesses of all types.

Aaron and his wife Michelle are life-long Lincoln residents and have 4 children. They recently decided to add a second dog to the chaos due to Aaron’s love of chocolate labs that Michelle knew he couldn’t resist. Aaron likes the challenge of hitting out of the roughs and adjacent fairways when he swings the sticks, enjoys a spring turkey hunt after tax season, and continues to have hope the Huskers can return to the glory days of the mid-90’s.
