pat bauer


certified public accountant

Pat is the matriarch of the BWC team. What began as a hobby 30 years ago has led to the thriving, close knit, firm that we all love today. When Pat first hung out her shingle she was preparing tax returns by hand, so it was only natural that her first tax software program was called “Pencil Pushers”.

Pat earned her bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and received an MBA from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Pat held a wide variety of financial and management accounting positions in the financial services industry for 25 years prior to starting the firm in 1999.

Pat was born in the frozen tundra of the Midwest and moved to Texas as soon as she possibly could. However, she does like the occasional cold snap we have here in TX – you can take the girl out of the Midwest, but you can’t stop her from doing 360’s on the ice!

Pat loves dogs and shares her shih-tzu, Remy (named after the famous television icon, Remington Steele), with clients and members of the BWC team on a regular basis.

Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, listening to music, walking, practicing Pilates, and finding her Zen.
