Small Business. Family. Trust. 


McEwan & Associates, Inc. began in San Jose, CA when Deborah McEwan started her CPA practice in 1982.  She built the practice up to a two city firm, one in Monterey, one in San Jose, where her daughter joined her ranks in 2004 along with ten other employees throughout the years. In 2008, Deborah moved the firm solely to Monterey, meanwhile her daughter, Emily McEwan-Upright, earned her Enrolled Agent status with the IRS.  Emily is able to do taxes in any state of the country, and is able to represent her clients in from the IRS for any tax issue.  Emily is also the accountant/bookkeeper in the firm, doing work for a number of small businesses in the Bay Area, as well as international clients.  The firm moved to Gilroy in December 2017, where it found a permanent home in the beautiful victorian, the Pixley house, in downtown Gilroy.  Anika Mathewson has joined the staff in 2018, managing the office and helping clients with their needs.
