* TAX SEASON:
We chose the name Integrity for a reason.
Accounting, payroll services, consultation and tax preparation are the products, but integrity is the primary focus of our business.
“My clients deserve someone with integrity to prepare their taxes and advise them in their businesses. It’s my business philosophy and standard. It’s how I live my life – it’s an integral part of me.”
-Yvonne Chastain, EA (Owner)
Yvonne and her staff place a high priority on customer relationships. “We treat people how they deserve to be treated and take the extra step or two to make sure they are happy. We strive to know everybody who walks through the door by name… even though we may only see them once a year.”
Yvonne was a registered nurse for 40+ years until 2015 where she shifted to focus fully on her business. When asked how she was able to switch to such a different field, she confidently replied,
"It's all the same to me. This is just another way I can use my natural and nurtured talents to be of valuable service to others and that feels good to me."
She is a firm believer in building personal relationships with her clients and is a very proud grandmother of 7.
YVONNE CHASTAIN, EA
Yvonne has over 25 years of experience providing accounting and tax-preparation services. As an enrolled agent with the IRS since 2010, she is able to legally represent clients in the event of an IRS audit.
On the off season, she exhaustively involves herself in continued education to stay sharp and relevant in current tax information.
Will is the ghost of a mischievous child whose spirit was trapped inside the boundaries of our tax office and this plane of existence after his death in the early 1900s.
He often takes the form of a wise-cracking adult man from Tennessee and he likes answering emails and creating spreadsheets. It's really strange but we try not to bother him with questions because he gets a lot done for us and we don't want him to start making doors slam and stacking all the furniture again.
Working for 15+ years on taxes and payroll with Yvonne, Donna is known around the office as "the Silent Assassin". Quiet and focused, she executes every task that comes to her desk with precision and skill.
She enjoys time at home with her 7 grandchildren and their increasing zoo of pets. She has served as a Sunday School teacher at her church for over 30 years.
Heather started with Integrity in 2018 and has since proven herself as an invaluable asset. With a degree in accounting and an unceasing work ethic, she spends every moment in the office intently.
Off the clock, Heather attends her son's taekwondo matches, helps manage her husband's business, and goes to kickboxing classes for fun.
Linda officially started with Integrity during 2020. She has a bachelors in business management and is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). While she has enjoyed the extra time with her furry companion, Buster (a sweet senior, terrier mix rescue), retirement was lacking in opportunities for enriching interpersonal relationships. She's great with numbers and even better with people. We feel super fortunate to have her on our team.
Leah (Chastain) Stanley is a Pendleton native returned. After earning a degrees in Mathematics and Education in Nashville, TN, she went on to serve as a high school math educator in Kentucky then Tennessee for 12 years.
Mid 2022 she decided to relocate her small family back to her hometown and join in on some of the fun here at Integrity. We are delighted to have her.
Her younger brother wrote this bio. If you have the opportunity to speak with her you can reference the word "diarrhea" for pronunciation of her first name. It rhymes.
