Shelly Archuleta

CPA | Shareholder


There’s nothing Shelly enjoys more than planning surprise trips, watching basketball games, and laughing with her daughter.

Although she’s not looking forward to her daughter leaving for college in 2019, she is anticipating their vacation in Europe–which they’ve been planning together for the last 10 years.

When not spending time with her daughter, Shelly enjoys working with clients to solve problems and meet deadlines. As a shareholder in the firm’s audit and assurance practice, Shelly focuses all of her professional time on employee benefit plan audit and consulting work. She attends numerous trainings and conferences to ensure she stays up to date on the latest developments impacting employee benefit plans.
