Chad Wouters, CPA - Managing Partner
Born in Valley Forge, PA and raised in Cary, NC, Chad moved to Wilmington in 1998 and fell in love instantly. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, he knew Wilmington would be his home going forward. In 2006, Chad started working at a local CPA firm and worked his way up to Tax Partner in 2013. Chad is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants (NCACPA). In 2020, he decided it was time to venture out on his own to develop a more boutique style approach to CPA services.
Being a CPA allows Chad to meet business owners and truly understand how the accounting process can be incorporated into strategic planning. Innately a people person, he loves hearing stories and various backgrounds of people. Public accounting allows Chad to merge his passion for business and passion for people into one, becoming a trusted advisor and partner for his clients.
Living in Wilmington, Chad fully embraces the coastal life and has a fondness for boating, fishing, or simply hanging out at the beach all day with friends and family. A diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, seeing the Eagles win their first Super Bowl in person is one of his favorite memories.
Becky McCallister - Tax Associate
Becky has worked with Chad since December 2017, initially as his personal assistant. Originally from Ohio, Becky graduated from University of Toledo in 2014 with a bachelor’s in psychology. She is currently working towards a Masters of Psychology. When not working or doing the school thing, she enjoys spending time with her four nieces and her black cat, Elphie.
If Hogwarts were real, Becky would have been sorted into Slytherin house. (Chad would be a Hufflepuff!) Along with a love for Harry Potter, she loves fantasy in general, reading, and being creative. She is currently teaching herself how to sew and create custom shirts. Becky loves to bake and test out new recipes! She also has an unhealthy love of puns and bad jokes.
Meagan Hamblin - Systems Coordinator
Meagan is a North Carolina native, originally from Fayetteville, NC. She moved to Wilmington, NC in 2012 to continue her education in psychology at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. After graduating with her bachelor’s in psychology, she was hired as an administrative assistant at a local CPA firm in June 2015 where she worked closely with Chad and became the office manager in June 2017.
When she is not working, you can find Meagan spending time with her family, gardening, practicing yoga, or spending time at the beach. She also enjoys DIY home projects and reading. Much like Becky, Meagan also shares a love for Harry Potter and her Hogwarts House would be Ravenclaw.
