Sam Woodell, CPA

John Brewer, CPA

Tax Manager

A lifelong Oregonian, Sam grew up in Gresham outside of Portland. He initially worked at Kernutt Stokes following his graduation from the University of Oregon before moving to Portland in 2017. Sam returned to Eugene in 2022 and knowing that public accounting was a good fit for him, he rejoined the Kernutt Stokes team.

 Sam’s experience in many aspects of accounting, including public and industry, makes him a well-rounded accountant who services his clients well and cater services to their needs. He enjoys helping his clients navigate through their business challenges and likes the variety that comes with his work – no two days are the same!

 Sam and his wife Rebecca live in Eugene with their chocolate lab puppy, Boomer. They love to travel, and enjoy hiking outdoors with Boomer, attending as many University of Oregon sporting events as they can, and finding new restaurants, breweries, and wineries to try out. Sam likes being back in Eugene as it is a great place for food exploring!
