EA, Director of Accounting
I have been working in the field of tax and accounting since the beginning of 2012. Before entering the field of accounting, I worked in the financial field with a registered representative license.
I studied Business and Accounting, earning an Associate’s Degree in each field from the LDS Business College and Bachelors of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Utah. I currently practice tax accounting as an IRS Enrolled Agent.
Outside of work, I enjoy the Marvel Universe, I’m a die-hard Cincinnati Bengals fan, and love my family, including my two giant black Newfoundlands.
CPA, Director of Tax
Since I was a kid, I wanted to work with numbers. It wasn't until college that I decided that taxes was where I wanted to focus my career. I loved the idea of adding value to a client's bottom line by helping them implement strategies that resulted in tax savings.
I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2010 with an accounting degree. And I received my Master's Degree in Taxation from Weber State University in 2014. I have been a licensed CPA since May 2015.
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Ashley, since October 2010, and we have been blessed with two great kids (Daxton and Kenley). When not in the office, I like to spend time with family and play all kinds of sports. I also love watching my Cougars compete in football and basketball!
At Salt Lake Accountant Pros, I wear many hats. I'm a bookkeeper, fulfillment specialist, and entity specialist.
I am an avid Tennessee Titans fan and have traveled to Cincinnati and San Diego to see them play. I enjoy backpacking in Southern Utah and snowboarding in Northern Utah during the winter.
I am currently going part time to Salt Lake Community College for my associates in Accounting. I have worked with Salt Lake Accountant Pros for going on three years, and I am looking forward to continuing my career with this great company.
My name is Scott Petty, and other than living in Denver for a couple of years, I have lived in the Salt Lake Valley my entire life. I recently received my Business Associates degree from the Salt Lake Community College, and I am currently attending WGU for my Bachelors of Science in Accounting.
We are spoiled by the amazing scenery here in Utah and I like getting out and having fun in the mountains. I am a fan of college football and basketball because of the fun traditions around the country. Watching BYU games on TV with my grandpa when I am down in Provo is something I love to do, and I can generally be entertained any other sporting event if it happens to be on TV.
