Rayna was born in April in Northern California, where she grew up and lived most of her life. When the time came for her to decide where to attend college, she decided to attend University of Missouri-Rolla, more commonly known today as Missouri University of Science and Technology, where in 1995 she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Rayna is a 3rd Generation Graduate of the University, and the 13th person in her family to attend school there; she is also the first female in the family to attend school at Missouri S&T, and the only one to attend on a scholarship.
Her previous job experience includes working as a manager for US Gypsum Corporation & as an engineer for Litton Applied Technology, both of which were in California. Rayna is happily married to her husband, Steve. The pair has two sons, Riley and Ryan, aged 17 and 16 respectively. Rayna attended Tax School in 1996 with the idea to be able to find the most deductions on her own taxes, but then decided to work part-time at H&R Block. Rayna and her family moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 2003 and she went back to working for H&R Block soon after. She worked for H&R Block for another 8 years, earning her Military Tax Specialist and Enrolled Agent License while there. Rayna’s Clients come from around the nation, and while she specializes in Military Service taxes, she does many different types; these include business, personal, military, and many others.
Being an only child, Rayna is very close to her parents and made the decision to open an Entrepreneurship that specializes in all taxes with her father, Bruce Koopmann who is also an Enrolled Agent. Rayna believes that with this new business, she is more available to her clients, while giving better prices than many large companies. Rayna and Bruce talk to National Guard and Reservist units many times a year about their special tax circumstances and deductions, and plan to continue to do this as they believe that education is key. Being Enrolled Agents, both Rayna and Bruce can represent their clients at all of the tax court levels. Rayna and Bruce’s primary goal is to provide exceptional service at a reasonable price. They believe that having a small business helps give a cozier and nonintimidating feel to getting your tax return done. They treat clients as family and are honored to help all different types of people.
