Lesa Shoemaker

Partner, Direct Tax Leader - East, PwC US

I focus on large tax refunds and business realignment projects, and I also help our clients with due diligence and planning for acquisitions and divestitures.

I take on the role of confidante, which requires good listening skills. Tax regulations are constantly evolving, sometimes daily, so I proactively keep an eye on the changes. I keep our clients top of mind and strive to really understand their business and needs and related tax implications.

I’m involved in my community, connecting with other professionals and often hosting or attending events and women-focused gatherings. I also speak at tax conferences and in front of various state audit divisions and hearing officers. I’m actively involved in my kids’ sports events and school activities.
