Leslie Brunfelt, CPA
Client Account Services Manager
Who is thinking about your business at 5:30 a.m. except for you? Leslie Brunfelt is. While she's running the trails of Duluth, she's running your numbers in her mind and developing strategies for success. Leslie lives in the world of ideas, where over 20 years of experience means she can take your data and translate it into solutions.
Her path from 1st place in the mile run at age to 12 to running in a dozen marathons has taken hours of training and pounding the pavement. Likewise her path to become a successful business strategist has also been a marathon, not a sprint. Earning a BA in accounting with honors, working in top financial roles for organizations like maurices and the YMCA, and owning and operating a business, Leslie has honed her ability to manage information and turn it into strategies for your business. Leslie now brings all that experience to serve AKA's clients with professionalism and dedication.
When she isn't busy spicing up business plans, you can find her spicing up a delicious vegetarian dish for her two daughters, Emily and Sydney. A Duluth native, Leslie enjoys the lake, the parks, and the people that make this big, small town great. She is very involved in the Duluth community as a member of Junior League since 2008, as a member of the finance committee for the Chester Bowl Improvement Club and as a Trustee for the Sheltering Arms Foundation through St. Paul's Episcopal Church where she is an active member.
