Megan Abbott, MBA, MA, EA, Candidate for CFP® certification
I am a self-professed “nerd for numbers”.
After I finished my undergraduate in human development, I went onto graduate school at the University of Denver to earn my MBA with a focus in finance and also a MA in international development. After working in corporate healthcare and finance, I wanted to go into personal finance because I have a passion for wealth management, taxes, budgets, spreadsheets, and retirement. I subsequently became an Enrolled Agent with the IRS and I recently successful passed the Certified Financial Planner exam. Yes, I am a true “nerd for numbers”.
My enthusiasm for financial planning and taxes, puts my clients at ease knowing there is someone they can trust and is passionate about their unique story in the process.
I have a wonderful husband and together we travel as often as we can. We’ve seen the fjords of Iceland, got engaged in Bali, hiked the Inca Trail, and have seen the sunrise over Angkor Wat, to name a few.
When I’m not in my happy place of taxes/financial planning, then you can find my husband and I mountain biking, camping, or planning our next adventure. As final fun facts, I am a big Oregon Ducks fan and I am a twin!

About Knight Accounting
Our clients will say that we are not your typical CPA firm. While there is no such thing as typical these days, we'll still take that as a compliment!
COMMUNICATION: The simplest of these is simply responding to calls and emails. While it is a sad state of affairs when this is lacking from other providers, but we also do our best to return all calls and emails within 24 hours. Email is always best, as we are often in client appointments and unable to grab the phone when it rights.
EDUCATION: We also believe that every taxpayer has the right to understand their tax situation. While others try to justify their work by talking over client’s head and making it all seem complicated, we take a different approach. We believe that it’s our job to fully explain the details, as many times as it takes, until our clients feel like they understand their situation. After all, it’s their taxes, not ours, and the key to saving money on taxes is knowledge!
CONNECTION: We do this job because we love people, not paperwork. Connection is critically important to us. If you're looking for a formal setting, you won't find it here. The best part of our job is being able to get to know our clients and help them with their financial situation, far beyond their tax return.
MEDIA: Because of her straight shooter approach, Knight Accounting's founder, Michele Knight, has been asked to contribute to NPR Marketplace the Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, The National Association of Tax Professionals, the Summit Daily, and Thomson Reuters Continuing Education Programs for accountants. Each opportunity has been a great opportunity to fulfill our responsibility of helping educate both the public and others in the industry, a responsibility we take very seriously.
