I studied abroad in Cork, Ireland, during college. I was able to see the Cliffs of Moher, Ring of Kerry, and kiss the Blarney Stone!
Melissa Triplett
Principal, CPA


I work primarily with manufacturing and distribution and service clients on tax planning and compliance. My focus is large, complex companies that often have an international presence through foreign subsidiaries or parent companies. My role also involves identifying potential opportunities, such as tax credits, and keeping clients up to date on the latest tax legislation changes.

My clients appreciate that I’m responsive and collaborative throughout both compliance and consulting projects. I work with specialists across the firm to provide the best client service. Keeping clients informed during projects helps ensure we meet their expectations and avoid surprises.

I participate in the Illinois Women in Manufacturing chapter. In June 2018, I received the firm’s Morrison Award, recognizing the selfless spirit that characterizes the firm’s culture. I received a B.S. in accounting from Indiana University and a M.Acc. from the University of Iowa.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and friends, baking, and going on walks with my dog.
