About Me: Dawn Lapio

Born in the “Little Town Of Mendon,” Massachusetts, I’ve always had a passion for numbers. I spent many years working my way up the career ladder in the corporate accounting world, in addition to performing international accounting for an environmental company, and providing bookkeeping and accounting consulting services for a variety of businesses across many industries (from family-owned businesses to well-established corporations).

I ventured to Arizona to pursue my fitness goals, but while I was there I reconnected with my true passion…numbers!

This realization brought me back to New England where I worked for another decade-plus in a variety of positions helping people take the dark side out of accounting and tax. Eventually, the time came for me to spread my wings and launch Dusk To Dawn Tax & Accounting.

Dusk To Dawn gives me the opportunity to work with clients the way I want to, with enthusiasm, personalized attention to detail, and open communication. These are attributes that can be lost in a large agency setting with too many cooks in the kitchen!

I currently reside in the beautiful country setting of Uxbridge, Massachusetts, and plan to keep growing Dusk To Dawn by helping my clients understand the “how to’s,” “what if’s,” and “why’s” of their accounting and taxes, allowing them to make the most informed decisions and bringing in the light!
