Frances M. Larson, CPA, CSEP

For Fran Larson¸ tax manager, the best thing about working in the accounting field is working with individuals and families. She feels best helping people resolve financial issues that make a difference in their lives. At home, she makes a difference as a mother of three and through community involvement with the Central Minnesota Sexual Assault Center and St. Cloud Business and Professional Women. Fran’s business philosophy is that the first and most important step in working with clients is to be a good listener and develop an understanding of what it is that they need from the Firm. Although Schlenner Wenner & Co. has grown significantly over the last decade, Fran values the fact that it has retained an effective hands-on approach with clients.
