Tim is a native of Louisville KY (even a graduate of Saint Xavier High School, Go Tigers!), and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from University of Kentucky (#BBN).

Since 1982 Tim has been IRS Enrolled to Represent Taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service as an Enrolled Agent. He is also an Accredited Tax Advisor and Accredited Tax Preparer.
Tim’s hobbies include fishing and low stakes poker. Tim is currently an officer and director of both the local division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in American and their 501c3 public charity, The Hibernian Cultural and Charitable Association, Inc.

Bill is a native of New York but spent most of his adult life in San Francisco, where he owned a large tax and accounting firm that catered to the city’s diverse community. He was very active in domestic partnership tax laws and spearheaded legislation that paved the way for current GLBT rights. In fact, some of his early work has evolved into legalizing marriage, state-by-state.
When Bill sold WEL Enterprise Inc (Your One Stop Financial Destination) in 2009 he traveled extensively and surprisingly found himself in Louisville KY which he proudly calls HOME. Bill partnered with Tim in 2017 and is excited to make Bourke his new tax family.
Today, Bill lives with his husband Phil and two adopted rescue labs, Loretta and Tess. Aside from caring for his four-legged “girls,” he enjoys painting (acrylics) and is often taking various art classes around Louisville. Bill is also an avid movie fan and a world-traveler.

Claudette has been in finance for over 6 years working with the “big” companies like Citigroup, Humana and GE…but then she found Bourke Accounting and felt at home. Claudette has 3 grown children and two grandchildren that she loves spending time with…
She loves to make people laugh but will settle on making them smile. She recently discovered how terrified of heights she is by spending a week at the top of a mountain in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. She was able to venture up the side of the mountain in a lift (with hardly any security she says) – blindfolded!
