Vikki Fischer-Kurth cares about people. Back in the 1970’s, part of her job was in payroll and because employees were asking her tax questions, she decided to take a tax course so she could properly answer their questions. That led to working part time for a major tax preparation service. In 1984, she decided she could do better by opening her own tax service where she could take more time with her clients and charge less. The first year, she prepared 60 returns, but through the years her business grew to over 1400 returns a year. Word of mouth is good advertising! Though she could retire, she continues to prepare taxes because she loves what she does and cares about her clients.
She worked in various accounting jobs after graduation from the Metropolitan School of Business in Milwaukee in 1968. In 1994, she quit her full-time job as accountant and office manager at a local auto dealership to devote more time to her expanding business as requests for her payroll and accounting services also increased. She retired from the payroll and accounting portion in 2016, but was very happy to offer her help to C.A.R.E. for Dodge County when they asked, because there is a real need for the services they can provide, and she believes strongly in their mission. She wants to assist in any way to make it possible for them to be successful.
Vikki has also served on the board of Oakwood Cemetery since 2001, serves on committees and church council at First Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam, and was a member and treasurer of the Beaver Dam Elks Lodge for 12 years. In her spare time, she enjoys photography, and gardening.
