Operations Team

Tara Ledwith, CPA | Accounting Manager

Creating an enjoyable investing experience

Each day when she comes to work, Tara loves knowing that she helps people pursue financial success so they can fulfill their dreams. 

Whether you call, e-mail, log into our website, or meet with one of our team members, Tara creates the ‘behind the scenes’ processes to ensure your experience is productive and easy.

Tara believes that your financial future is in the most caring hands as a client of Hammond Iles Wealth Advisors. She ensures your requests are met promptly and accurately by her experienced and long-standing team.

Tara earned her CPA while working at Price Waterhouse Coopers after graduating from Fairfield University with a B.S. in Accounting. Over the course of her career, she’s spearheaded using new technology to help people communicate better and streamline our clients’ investing experience. Maybe her inspiration came from working for BBN, a pioneer internet company founded by three MIT graduates who sent the very first successful e-mail!

Outside of work, Tara enjoys golf, swimming, and skiing with her husband and three children.
