Our Leadership

Michelle Schneider
Principal & Chief Financial Officer
"One of my top priorities is the success of the firm and the clients we serve.”

Michelle has been with Adams Brown since 1990. She began her tenure with the firm as a staff accountant and has moved through the ranks to her current position as Principal in the Great Bend office. Over the years, Michelle has focused her efforts in the agriculture and the oil and gas industries.

In November 2018, Michelle transitioned to the position of Chief Financial Officer. In this role, her duties include oversight of Adams Brown’s financial goals and working closely with the firm’s equity partners to move the firm forward.

Inspired by the desire to help others, Michelle found her calling as a CPA. She attributes her success to hard work and dedication. Her peers know her to be determined and technically knowledgeable.

Michelle grew up in Great Bend, Kansas. She currently resides on a farm in northwest Barton County, Kansas, with her husband, Chris, and their two children.
