Marci Blackman, they/them


Marci has been providing a combination of tax preparation, bookkeeping and accounting services to a wide range of clientele, including individuals, partnerships, and small corporations for over 20 years. As a longtime freelancer and award-winning novelist, Marci understands what it means to “hustle” for your dreams, particularly as it pertains to taxes. As a partner in Treehouse Taxes LLC, Marci believes transferring knowledge and helping artists and freelancers become savvy taxpayers is a form of social justice.

Michael O'Neill, he/him

Tax Preparer/Bookkeeper 

Michael joined the Treehouse Team in 2019 bringing his own well-rounded experience to the table. He is an artist, a parent, and a musician and has performed around the world in groups like MEN, Princess, and High Time. In all of those touring years, he has always been the one opening up a spreadsheet backstage to track expenses, total up mileage and take care of business as the band bookkeeper. You might also recognize him from Williamsburg's beloved Egg, where he was the restaurant's General Manager and Bookkeeper for many years. He’s proud to work at Treehouse Taxes and loves our amazing network of clients! 

Laura Shedd, she/her

Tax Preparer 

Laura joined the Treehouse Team in 2022. Laura had several careers before joining Treehouse - in non-profit finance, as a middle-school math teacher, and as a budget director for CUNY college access programs. For Laura, the thread that runs from math teaching to nonprofit budgets to tax prep, is the chance to help people harness the power, and overcome the fear, of working with numbers. In her free time, Laura thrives on the everyday magic of plants, animals, children, music and food. Laura is glad to be part of the Treehouse team, where she can learn new things every day and help support Treehouse clients! 

Diana Y Greiner, she/her


Diana knows about cobbling together an income, tracking expenses, and pursuing a dream. She has spent over 20 years juggling the life of a performing artist while developing and maintaining her left brain as the managing director of an arts organization, a waitress, an acrobatics instructor, an office manager, systems designer, a massage therapist, a bookkeeper and finally a full-fledged tax nerd. Diana believes empowering folks with information and understanding about systems, including taxes, is another tool toward social justice. Through it all she maintains that connection is the point of everything.
