Candy Plant appreciates McCoy Foat’s high standard of professionalism. In her words, “It’s a great company to work for. The firm truly values the employees.”

Candy got her start in accounting while working for a CPA. She joined McCoy Foat in early 2009, bringing more than 20 years of experience in preparing individual and business tax returns. She has worked extensively with QuickBooks and Peachtree, as well as other accounting software packages. She is also licensed with the IRS as an enrolled agent.

Nothing makes Candy happier than putting clients at ease. “So many people get stressed out when you mention tax time. I want to make the process as easy as possible for clients, so they don’t feel stressed,” she says. Her easy-going nature, organizational skills and attention to detail are a winning combination, making the client comfortable and the tax process easy.

Candy resides in the Charbonneau District of Wilsonville with her husband, John, and a canary named Carter. She’s a birdwatcher and loves being out in the fresh air touring Charbonneau, enjoying nature and getting exercise. With her love for birds, it’s no surprise that she’s a volunteer educational bird handler. Next time you’re in the office, ask Candy about her favorite owl, Hazel!
