Andrew Meyers

Managing Partner

Andrew has a diversified experience working with small and medium-sized closely held businesses and their owners in a wide variety of industries that include dealerships, distributors, high-tech, manufacturing, real estate, food service and retail/wholesale.  He has experience working with all types of entity structures; however, much of his time is spent supporting pass-through businesses and their owners who file in multiple jurisdictions.

Prior to starting the firm, Andrew spent twelve years at other accounting firms in Portland, including a senior role at a large local firm where he spent 10 years.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and Economics from Portland State University.

When not assisting clients, Andrew’s busy spending time with his family.  He and his wife, a fellow CPA, spend much of their free time traveling the world with their three kids.

Alla Meyers

Partner

Alla has extensive experience with real estate owners and managers, real estate developers, brokers, hoteliers, restauranters, and private equity investment funds. She assists clients with specialized services such as entity formation, deal strategizing and cost segregation studies.

Alla also serves clients outside of real estate and hospitality, such as those in the professional service industry, high net-worth individuals, and highly compensated employees with RSUs and ISOs. Many of the clients she works with are closely held or family-owned business which require planning for both the company and the individual owners.

Prior to joining Backstop, Alla spent over seventeen years working at a large local public accounting firm in Portland in a senior roll. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting & Finance from Washington State University and is licensed in Oregon.

When Alla is not working with her clients, she spends much of her time with her husband, who is also a CPA and managing member of the firm, and three kids. She loves the outdoors, hiking, skiing and traveling.

Corinn Parks

Director

Corinn has been practicing since 2003. She has experience in tax compliance and planning with high net worth individuals, rental real estate, business owners, family groups, pass-through entities, private foundations, trusts, and estates. She enjoys working with individuals and families to help them plan and grow their financial success, which includes mitigating tax liabilities and often complex tax planning.

Prior to joining Backstop, Corinn worked for large local public accounting firms in Portland, and was a lead in the tax department for a large financial planning/investment management company. She is a licensed CPA in Oregon and has a BA in Accounting from Linfield.

Since having a son on her own (he just turned 3!), Corinn has scaled down her tax practice to part-time to focus more time on being a Mom. Corinn recently moved to Bend for more sun, and works remotely out of the Portland office. She enjoys planning warm vacations to escape the cold winters, investing in rental real estate, spin class, yoga, traveling, time with friends and her fiancé, and anything chocolate.
