Shannon Reichelt, CPA
Founder & all OnaWay Services
Shannon founded the original CPA firm S. Reichelt & Company LLC in 2006 shortly thereafter came Leap Bookkeeping. As the businesses grew and 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 learned to selflessly aid others.
The OnaWay was a long time concept of creating one place as a safe haven for people needing various services to help gain control over their money. This is a personal connection 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 or professionally.
Shannon is the creative behind the OnaWay and manages the company. She is the master-mind behind OnaLife, writing all original content. She specializes in working with small businesses including entity strategy, cash-flow management, accounting system development, plans for business and personal income taxes, and coaching. She also heads up the OnaMoney team helping 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 has joined forces with Dave Ramsey Solutions becoming a Designated Master Financial Coach and Endorsed Local Provider (elp).
When she’s not working or helping others, she loves to read, write, design spaces, be creative with Ona and create new ways to help people. Travel abroad is a new love and diving into faith. Of course spending time with friends and 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.
OnaBooks, OnaTax, OnaPayroll
Alicia is a senior member of the OnaTeam and integral part of the firm. She leads the OnaBooks & OnaPayroll departments as well as working with clients in the OnaTax sector. Originally, she managed the firms’ finances with Shannon and became a natural at helping design systems and flow. She now does that directly with other small businesses. She is easily becoming expert at designing organized, systematic processes that nail both accuracy and efficiency.
Personally Alicia is a mix of genuine goodness & unrivaled discipline. She is a HARD worker, dedicated, loyal, sweet and kind, an ideal teammate. But make no mistake she knows her craft and expects excellence in whatever she does.
Alicia graduated from Westfield State University in 2013 with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting and received her Master's Degree in Accounting in 2015. She is currently studying for the CPA exam.
Alicia loves her husband Sean, her fam, music, traveling anywhere and everywhere, and pushing herself to higher levels of personal best.
