Deborah A. Santoni

Debbie was a co-founder of our predecessor firm, Tillman & Santoni, LLC, which began business in June 2001. Debbie previously worked with her partner Leonard Tillman for almost 30 years until his recent retirement. Debbie has been in public accounting since 1985, when she began work as a part-time, tax season employee while still attending college. She became a CPA in 1986.


Debbie has spent her career in a small local CPA firm, because she enjoys the relationships which are built through years of working with clients in a small-firm environment. Debbie has worked with small-business clients, with a concentration in the healthcare field, as well as individuals, preparing compiled financial statements, income tax returns, and providing extensive tax planning services. Debbie has designed financial statement reporting to meet clients' individualized requests for specific data.
