Emily Garberding, office assistant

Emily has been with the Tax Man To You team since the inception of the company.  As a generalist, she is able to assist where needed when needed.  From filing returns to answering the phones, she is a great asset to the team.


Her passion is the environment and sustainability.  She has been a great help in making the office more paper free than ever.  She has also helped George with his wording, as it is sometimes a bit wordy and can come off as, shall we say, "raw" or "salty". 


In her free time, Emily enjoys spending time with her dog-ters, Sophie and Sunny, and tending to her 100+ plant collection.

Laura Cunningham, office administrator

Laura is originally from Utah, but landed in Colorado in 2010 and made a home for herself and her beautiful blended family, to include her gaggle of five daughters.

Laura joined Tax Man To You as a part-time employee while finishing her college courses for medical billing and coding. As she completed her courses and passed the state exam to earn her CPC-A, it became abundantly clear that she had found her home with Tax Man To You. 

Laura officially settled in as a full-time, long-term employee in 2021 and continues to receive fulfillment in pursuing client satisfaction and meticulous record-keeping.

Laura is not known for her brevity.

Stephanie Whittemore

Stephanie has been with Tax Man To You since 2020.  She has spent the last 30+ years raising her wonderful kids and is now the caretaker for her father.   Her passion is her children, however, those who know her would say KISS concerts are a very very close second.  She has never missed one that was within 100 miles of her.


For relaxation, she enjoys Soduko and crossword puzzles.  Her choice of puzzles for relaxing fits into her job with TMTY as well.  In looking for the compliance puzzle that the Secretary of State can be, she is able to calmly fix the situation.
