Dyan Murphy, CPA

Dyan Murphy is a graduate of Purdue University. She began her career working in private industry as an accountant for small businesses in Indiana and Colorado and thought she would never want to work in public accounting because CPAs were just too stuffy. But a move to Maui and an opportunity there with a small CPA firm changed all that. She loved the contact with clients, variety of work, and challenges involved in resolving small business and tax issues. Returning to Colorado in the late 1980s after a year in ‘paradise,’ Dyan decided to become a CPA after all. She got her CPA license and has been practicing ever since. She loves helping business owners solve their accounting, business, and tax problems.

Dyan and her husband Mark have raised 3 boys in the Basalt area and both are very involved with the Boys Scouts and Church. She is a member of numerous organizations including the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants, American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Basalt Chamber of Commerce.
