Trevor Patten is the owner of Compass Financial Services LLC, a tax consulting firm in Monument, Colorado. Trevor is a graduate of Humboldt State University of California, where he received a BS in wildlife management and ecology.
Trevor spent several years after graduation collecting biological data in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and other locations in the western U.S. during the summers and the rest of the year working for EFS, Inc., a tax and business consulting firm in Los Angeles. It was here that he realized that years of performing in depth statistical analysis of biological data sets was excellent preparation for the world of income taxes.
Following the death of the owner of EFS Inc. in 2013 he took over as general manager and senior consultant of the company before leaving to begin his own firm Compass Financial Services LLC in 2014. When not in the office he enjoys hiking in the wilderness and training dogs.
