Nancy Gruenhagen, CPA

Sr. Tax Advisor


Quad Cities


(309) 797-4030

I formed my own CPA firm, which I operated for more than 23 years before merging my company with The Planning Center in 2011. Today, I am responsible for the accounting and tax services provided to our clients. My career focus is to serve our clients to the best of my ability. It is a pleasure being a part of The Planning Center and coming to work every day. There are always new and different assignments, and I am constantly teaching others and learning myself. Most of all, I love interacting with our clients and helping them make life-planning decisions.

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” [Helen Keller]

I live each day to the fullest with no regrets.  I am recently married to Larry and we enjoy spending time with family and friends.  On my days off work, I enjoy travel, brisk walks, golf and singing in the Praise Ensemble at contemporary worship service at church.”
