Established in 1986

Coet2 CPAs PC started as a sole proprietorship in the home of John and Fran Coet. After three filing periods and progressive growth (the front storm door came off its hinges due to the business traffic), the Coets ventured into leased office space in Westminster, Colorado in 1988. Over the past 25 years, the practice has grown dramatically in employees and services provided. John was part-time with the business while working full-time at the Finance Center at Lowry Air Force Base, and became full-time with the practice in 1989. Ten years later, Cathie Asmus, EA, a DU graduate with a degree in accounting, joined the firm and is currently the Accounting Manager. Paraprofessionals with the firm include Sherri Schalaman, Barbara Arnold and Barbara Grim.
