Zachary Mester

Tax Associate

My name is Zach, and I am a Tax Associate at Midwest Financial Group.  I am currently in my final semester at the University of Minnesota - Carlson School of Management where I major in both Accounting and Finance & Risk Management Insurance and minor in Business Law.  Originally from Belmont, Wisconsin, moving to Minneapolis has been exciting and I love to explore the city with my friends.

My interest in providing tax services has only grown since starting here, and I have learned so much.  I’m working towards CPA licensure and couldn’t be more excited to grow my experience here!  One of the best parts about working with Midwest is the interactions I get to have with clients.  Knowing I can have a positive impact on them is something that puts a smile on my face every day.

I enjoy an active lifestyle (although I do love an occasional night in, watching tv with Henry, my Maine Coon cat, curled up next to me).  Attending concerts, watching sporting events, going skiing, playing pickleball, exploring new restaurants - I’m usually up to something new every week.  A current adventure of mine is working towards getting my SCUBA certification.  Oh, and I love to travel!  I always look forward to my yearly family trip to the lakes of Northern Wisconsin.  One of my favorite travel experiences was a trip to Costa Rica where I participated in a homestay with a local family.  I learned so much about their culture and even picked up on some Spanish.  I cannot wait for my next experience, whatever it may be!
