Meet Our Staff
Angie is a native of Indiana, a graduate of Purdue University and has called Iowa home for over 25 years. In 2006 Angie was given the opportunity to become the apprentice and eventual successor to a tax accounting business (now Anderson Professional Services) that was founded nearly forty years earlier. She was one of the first groups of professional preparers to complete the IRS Registered Tax Return Preparer program, and recently passed a series of tests that will hopefully allow her to become an enrolled agent with the IRS later this spring. With thirty eight credit hours of continuing education this year alone, Angie enjoys staying current on the ever changing tax code.
Angie serves on the board of directors to the Boys & Girls Home & Family Services of Sioux City. She is also a member of the Selective Service System Board. Her husband, former Iowa state Senator, Bill Anderson, serves as Director for Cherokee County Economic Development Corporation.
When it’s not tax season, Angie and Bill enjoy small town and rural living with their three young children. They are members of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Cherokee.
