Meet the Staff

Robin Poole

Robin has been preparing tax returns for almost 40 years.  She started out right after college, working with her father Roger in his small Southborough practice.  Keeping her dad’s business model and work ethic of offering personalized face to face service for a reasonable price has grown the practice from a one office home-based business with a few hundred clients, to a thriving practice in downtown Hudson with four full time experienced tax professionals.  Roger retired in 2015, but Robin still follows his business practice because her dad always told her ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’.  During the off season, you can find Robin living on the Cape and cruising around on her Indian motorcycle.

Raianne Richards

Raianne has been preparing income tax returns with Poole Tax Service since 2010. Raianne currently resides with her fiance in Webster, MA but has many family ties to the Hudson and Marlborough area. During the off season she is a music educator and a multi-instrumentalist songwriter who performs nationally.
