Heather McGee Decauwer

Heather McGee Decauwer was promoted to Senior Manager at Vicenti, Lloyd & Stutzman in 2012.

“There are many places where I can practice public accounting” Heather said recently, “but the high level of service this firm strives to deliver and the character of my colleagues is why I work here.”

Heather graduated from California State University San Bernardino and began her career practicing public accounting. She developed a unique perspective of public accounting after leaving it to work for a large respected university system. While this experience proved invaluable, she realized that her career satisfaction comes from helping clients succeed in the mission of their organization.

“Whenever I have a conversation with a client after helping resolve a complex issue, I am pleased to know that I have made a positive difference.” This feeling is what Heather enjoys about her career. “Being part of a team that brings value for a client is very rewarding”.

Heather devotes her time to clients comprised of education organizations and non profit clientele. When not serving client needs, Heather invests her time in educating herself on the industries she works in and participates in professional groups and associations.

When not in the office, Heather enjoys anything outdoors. On the weekends, you can find Heather either biking, horseback riding or at the archery range with her son.
