Dave started his accounting career with a small public accounting firm in Caldwell, Idaho in 1972. Seven years later, he became a partner with Jon Frye and formed Frye & Vauk CPAs, LLP. In 2000, Dave opened the Nampa office of Frye & Vauk CPAs. After Jon Frye retired in 2016, Dave started the search for a CPA who would serve his clients well after his retirement. He and Jenn formed Vauk & Schmerer CPAs in 2018, and Dave was able to retire in October 2019. He is happy to see his legacy continuing to grow and thrive under Jenn’s confident leadership, and to consult on client issues as the need arises (in between golf rounds).
Dave has lived in the Treasure Valley all his life. He is an active member of the Rotary Club of Nampa. Rotary projects help our community in providing coats and school supplies to kids. He enjoys golfing and attending Boise State football and basketball games. Spending time with his wife Suzie and traveling with family and friends to places near and far are moments he treasures. Dave has a daughter who lives in San Francisco and a son who lives in Boise along with his two spoiled grandsons.
Jenn graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting from Boise State University. She began her accounting career at a firm offering regulation compliance services for small publicly-traded companies, where she had the opportunity to complete projects all over the western United States, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
In addition to her career as a CPA, Jenn has owned and operated several small businesses, specializing in turning average franchise locations into high-performing, award-winning sites. Most recently, Jenn and her husband Jim opened All Valley Cremation in 2017, which is Nampa’s first and only crematory. As a fellow business owner, Jenn is passionate about helping her clients plan and execute a comprehensive business and tax strategy that will help them meet their goals in every phase of their business.
Jenn grew up in Walla Walla, Washington, but has been happy to call the Treasure Valley home since 2012. Jenn has three teenage sons and an amazing husband, who she’s been married to for 20 years.
