Beth Goerges

Beth Goerges, CPA

Certified Public Accountant

We were ecstatic to have Beth join our team in 2019 because she helps us to blend her experience working for a large firm, with the best qualities of working with a small and truly local firm. She has a distinct talent and passion for auditing and assurance work.


Her responsibilities within our team include:

  • Non-profit Audits
  • Fire Relief Audits
  • Monthly Gambling
  • Tax Preparation (business, individual, non-profit)

Beth is most definitely a people person and it shows within seconds of meeting with her. She brings a wonderful energy to our team full of fresh ideas, perspectives, and professional development to help us all grow. She brings an enthusiasm to this profession along with her superb attention to detail. She is willing to go the extra mile and ensure that no stone is unturned when problem solving so that she can go to her clients with “good news”.

Beth grew up in Cold Spring, MN before moving to the Lakes Area in 2006. She first graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana with a BS in Biology and later graduated from Bemidji State with a BS in Accounting.

Beth proudly passed the CPA exam on the first try in less than a year’s time. She shares this accomplishment with her husband and better half, Jon, without whom she says it wouldn’t have been possible. Between working full-time and being a rock star mom, Jon was (and still is) the calming force in their home. She describes her husband as the real deal handy man who can fix anything and everything!

Beth’s home is full of excitement with her two sweet daughters, Nellie (10) and Jules (8), who are firecrackers in their own right and keep her on her toes! Now add three dogs into the equation and you have yourself a fun time at the Goerges’ residence.

Outside of the workday, Beth is a dedicated board member for her girls’ school, St. Francis of the Lakes Catholic School. She is also a proud member of the Brainerd Zonta Club- a local women’s club under Zonta International, working to empower women worldwide through service and advocacy. Can you say girl power? Her family is also very active within their church.

Once summer rolls around, their family has taken up biking on the Paul Bunyan Trail and the occasional “fun” run. They also love hiking and exploring the gorgeous views of the North Shore and searching for the real Minnesota treasure, agates. When they aren’t enjoying what the Lakes Area has to offer, Beth loves a good beach vacation where she can sink into the sand with a good book while her husband snorkels and the girls cartwheel along the beach.

What can a client expect when working with the Justin, Clasen & Company, Ltd. team?

The best part about Justin, Clasen & Company is the fact that everyone here genuinely wants to help people. We aren’t here to make a quota or to impress anyone with our credentials. We just want to help people meet their reporting requirements and make it as painless as possible.
