Rochelle Vermeulen  |  Office Administrator     Rochelle@VermeulenCPA.com

The office administrator position is best filled by someone who is flexible and knows how to follow through on the “task-of-the-day”. That’s Rochelle! She is the go-to person in the office when a specific project needs to get done. If a client or staff member needs help with anything, Rochelle is always willing. When not at the office, Rochelle enjoys long distance running and being with her family.

Lynette Brawley  |  Executive Administrator     Lynette@VermeulenCPA.com

Lynette is the smiling face you see when you walk in our front door and usually the first voice you hear on the other end of the phone. Her goal is to make every client feel like family and to be well taken care of. She loves to create a fun and friendly environment at the office.  Lynette has worn several hats in her professional career—including banking and real estate—and she has now found her home at Vermeulen & Company.
