My name is Monika Heaton.
I have 25+ years of experience guiding business owners and professionals to make smart tax and financial decisions.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management (with an emphasis in Accounting) from Sonoma State University. I started my accounting career while I was still attending college, spent over six years with a family-owned firm in San Rafael, CA. My time there taught me that a tax return is more than just a collection of numbers on forms.
Leaving corporate America to raise my daughter I founded Decision Financial Services, Inc. in 2001. In 2004 I became an Enrolled Agent. In 2013 I received my NTPI Fellow designation.
I live in Colleyville with my husband Robert, daughter Anni and stepson Riley. During my free time I enjoy tennis, yoga, and learning how to play golf.
I understand that most tax professionals do a fine job recording the history of your business but I see my real value as helping you write your own!

My name is Riley Heaton.
Like Monika, I’m a native Californian, but I’m glad to be here in Texas. I did a few years of college back in California for liberal arts and spent a great deal of time tutoring others.
I enjoy the arts scene, whether it is visual or performing arts. In my spare time I like to play and create art for video games, attend musicals, write, and go hiking.
I enjoy helping Monika at Decision Financial, keeping her office running smoothly and being at your service. I look forward to working with you.
My name is Jody Stahl.
I have 20+ years of accounting experience in various industries. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of North Texas.
My husband and I have been married for 3 years and live in Haslet with our two children, who like to keep us busy. I enjoy cooking, fishing, snow-skiing, and doing fun cookouts with our neighbors. While I have visited some beautiful places, visiting Japan is on my bucket list.
I am so excited to be a part of a company that is growing, and is made up of people who want to work hard and do everything we can to help our clients.
My name is Kacie Arriaga.
I have 10+ years of corporate healthcare experience. My desire to connect with people on a more personal level led to me searching for an opportunity outside of the corporate environment.
I am a native Texan who enjoys traveling, baking, swimming, riding horses, and hanging out on a nice patio with some friends. I am newly married and live in Fort Worth with my wife and two dogs.
I am thankful to be at a company where it truly feels like home. Monika’s passion for helping others is apparent from the minute you meet her, and I am thrilled to be a part of her growing business.
