Shannon Reichelt, CPA
Shannon founded the original CPA firm S. Reichelt & Company LLC in 2006 and Leap Bookkeeping. As her journey as a business owner continued she developed a true love & desire to help other owners deal with running their businesses. She’s a constant inspiration sharing her own lessons to selflessly aid others.
The OnaWay was a long time concept of creating a CPA firm that acted as a safe haven for people to help gain control over their money. We say safe haven, because money is riddled with emotion and we wanted to be a safe place where you come first, not our profits. This is personal to Shannon as she has been impacted since childhood on the negatives money can play in our lives. Now successful in her own right, she’s dedicated to help prevent similar pains for others personally and professionally.
Shannon is host of the OnaWay Money Show, a weekly radio show on local WHMP 101.5 and the OnaWay Money podcast. The show is rooted in helping everyone win with money.
She is the Managing Partner of the firm and specializes in working with small business owners on things such as entity selection strategy, cash-flow management, accounting system design, business & personal income taxes, and coaching. Through our OnaMoney coaching program she helps people win with their day-to-day money.
Shannon graduated from Westfield State University in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management/Accounting and earned her CPA license in 2006. She became a Designated Master Financial Coach with Dave Ramsey in 2018.
When she’s not working or helping others, she loves to read, write, design spaces, be near the water, travel abroad or studying faith. And spending time with her husband Bill and their beautiful bulldogs Grace & Karma.
Bill Reichelt, CPA/ABV
We like to call Bill our technical brilliance! His public accounting career spans over 45 years with taxation as his specialty. Bill is lead of the OnaTax team. He works with businesses and individuals on all taxation issues from the highly complex to the simple. He has extensive experience with all types of individual and business entities.
In addition to his tax expertise, Bill is also a business valuation expert. He is an Accredited Business Valuation (ABV) Specialist, licensed by the AICPA and provides business valuation services to clients, banks, investors, and other interested parties.
Bill's credentials: he earned his CPA license in 1982 and has been a licensed ABV Specialist since 2001 and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants and the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts. He is the longstanding Treasurer of the Rotary Club of West Springfield. Bill graduated from The University of Connecticut in 1978 with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and earned his Master's Degree in Business Administration from Western New England College in 1985.
That’s a long list of educational credentials, but what we love most at the OnaWay about Bill is that he takes that technical knowledge and combines it with a warm caring presence. Bill is a kind gentle soul with a keen intellect. You won’t feel inferior speaking with him on topics of high technical nature.
On the personal front Bill loves to read, golf, visit with his family, but we think we might all come second to his love of his bulldogs Grace & Karma! His wife is Shannon and he has two sons, Chris, a fellow accountant and Will, the Mayor of West Springfield.

Shana brings the light to the OnaWay! Her vibes are infectious and its super clear she loves people. Shana is the voice on the line when you call and the ring leader of everything OnaWay. It impossible to list everything she does so let’s just say it’s everything! Office Manager is too little a title but that’s what we roll with.
What do we love best about Shana? There isn’t one thing but many. There should be more in the world that help others selflessly and with their whole hearts. If she’s helping you with anything at the OnaWay you are with someone that will help make your life better.

Shana has a beautiful growing family with her man Mike and new baby Addison along with furry friends, Jackson and Zoe. She loves time with friends/fam, music, tattoos, anything creative and being by the water.
Randi is a member of our OnaBooks & OnaPayroll team. Directly managing her own group of clients, Randi skillfully keeps your books organized, timely and on point.
What we admire about Randi is her heart. She strives to take care of everyone she encounters at a level far beyond what’s expected. She’s hard on herself, but its only because her big heart wants to take care of the world!
Randi’s background hails from the world of finance working at large groups such as Mass Mutual & Charter Oak in the insurance and financial services area.
Randi has a stunning family including husband Mike, little cutie daughters, Sawyer & Salem and pups, Huck & Willow. Clearly she has a knack for cool names! When Randi might get a free second while raising a young thriving family she enjoys animals, re-designing their home, holistic remedies/well-being, and nature.
