Staff Profiles

Wendy Byl

I left my corporate job in 2009. I jumped right into tax preparation when I purchased an H & R Block office in Northern WI. In 2013 my husband and I decided to move back to the Hudson/New Richmond area to be closer to family. I opened Premier Tax in Hudson WI in September of 2015 and just opened an office in New Richmond WI in January of this year (2022). After 30 years in the working world, I found my passion in tax preparation and consulting. I love working with my clients to get the best outcome possible on their tax returns. I look forward to doing this for many years to come! I live by southwest of New Richmond with my husband of 31 years, Jon and my son Blake who is 14.

Wanda Goulet

I started working at Premier Tax in January of 2021 as the Receptionist at Premier Tax. I have an Associate Degree in Accounting and took my first tax class this past Fall, which I really enjoyed. I will still be answering phones and greeting clients. I will also begin working on small individual tax returns and hope to progress into tax preparation over the next few years. I live in Ellsworth WI with my cat named Baby. I have a daughter Cheyenne and two grandchildren Ryan 11 and Carson 1. I’m also Wendy’s sister.

Megan Frost

I began working at Premier Tax in January of 2021 after taking my first tax class in the Fall of 2020. I’ve worked the past 18 months studying federal and state tax law. I really enjoy preparing taxes and working with a wide range of clients. I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration in 2011 at the University of Wisconsin–Stout. I look forward to continuing to work with my existing clients as well as taking on new clients, while being mentored by Wendy. I live in Hudson with my husband Zac and have a son Nelson 3 and daughter Monenea 2.
