Meet Your Team

We Work For Your Success!

Laurie Luxford

 Laurie's 25+ years of solid tax experience have given her the foundation necessary to confidently lead our team at Martin & Luxford LLC. She is an Enrolled Agent; this status allows her to talk to those happy–go–lucky IRS agents on your behalf. Laurie will be one of your greatest cheerleaders, walking alongside you at every step of your financial journey, because your success is her goal. Once she clicks "send" on that last email of the day, you might spot her heading north for a quick trip to the U.P.

Janel Brooker

 Janel assists our team and all of our clients with various day-to-day administrative tasks.  After she hangs up the phone for the day, she just might start planning a tropical vacation.

Hammock Relaxing

Myra Dornan

 With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Myra has developed an uncanny ability to uncover the root cause of highly complex, multi-dimensional corporate accounting issues. Her persistence and attention to detail deliver results that our clients have come to depend on. When she steps away from the numbers, you might find her on a long walk enjoying nature with her dogs or exploring Michigan lakes by boat.

Dan Vanliere

 What an asset we have in Dan! With his 40+ years of experience, he brings a uniquely helpful perspective to our practice. If he’s not at the office, he’s likely golfing, walking the dog, or hanging out with his grandchild.

Jenni DeVos

 With Jenni's 25 + years of accounting experience, she is a great asset to our small business clients - keeping track of their books and reducing their tax liability as much as possible! On the rare occasions she’s not immersed in tax work, she can be found traveling the world with her family.


Phil Calkins

 Phil has spent 50+ years in the tax preparation business. With his extensive knowledge base, he plays a vital role on our team, working alongside of us during tax season and confirming results in the finalization stage of each return. His sense of humor is a breath of fresh air when we are neck-deep in tax processing.

Bonsai Tree

Kirsten Swanson


 Kirsten is an all-around asset to our team. She supports our staff, small businesses, and individual clients. With her years of service at accounting firms and small businesses, Kirsten's experience is both deep and wide. She has excellent attention to detail and loves to crunch numbers. If she’s not working on your books, you may catch her walking her dog or relaxing poolside.

Chris Dykstra

Chris is the newest member of our team but comes to us with over 18 years of experience in the tax and accounting world!  When he's finished  making those debits equal credits he just might be playing a round of golf, relaxing at home with his dogs and cats or watching college sports.
