Ed Brooks joined Kuenzi & Company in June of 2007 bringing with him an eclectic self-employment background. Prior to beginning his second career as an accountant, Ed worked as a small business owner for more than 22 years. He served Oregon for 19 years as an AFA Journeyman Farrier, a Blacksmith, and as a volunteer on related boards and trade associations. While undergoing college training for a career in accounting, Ed and his family managed a roller rink in Dallas, Oregon. He graduated in spring of 2004 from Western Oregon University Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration (Accounting Focus), and has been employed in public accounting since that time.

Ed's professional duties include auditing and accounting services; tax preparation and planning for individuals, non-profit organizations and businesses; software and information systems support, and small business consulting. Ed is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and of the Oregon Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Throughout his working career Ed has found success in serving our community. He served as president of the Oregon Farrier Association and worked with Oregon Ag Fest to raise money for various horseback riding therapy programs in Oregon. In college, Ed organized community reading incentive programs for local schools. As an accountant, he has donated time and experience as a teacher for the Chemeketa Center for Business and Industry in Salem, Oregon and regularly works with his church and other non-profit organizations.

When not at work Ed enjoys various hobbies such as music, astronomy, and golf; however, his most favorite way to spend time-off is with his wife and three children.
