A Corunna native, Randy embraced the opportunity to return the area to work with neighbors and community members alike, who would quickly become both clients and friends.

Married to Valerie, they have raised two wonderful, young adults who are no longer deductions. Randy enjoys playing golf, running, antiquing, and traveling.

Buffy Soper
Senior Accountant

Buffy began her accounting career in high school, dual enrolling in accounting classes at LCC while employed as a bookkeeper at The Colonels at the age of sixteen. She continued her education at Baker College, graduating summa cum laude with a BA in Accounting. Buffy was raised in Owosso and has worked for several major local businesses prior to VMD. She works closely with clients to ensure best practices, the utilization of the most current software and technology, and to navigate evolving governmental rules and regulations. While she doesn’t consider herself crafty, she endeavors where others dare not go, like tackling a detailed counted cross-stitch of the Mackinac Bridge, a favorite Buffy and Ted vacation destination area. They are avid agate hunters, trekking to the Upper Peninsula at least twice a year.

Valerie Meder

After a career in education as a teacher and administrator, Valerie filled in as administrator for VMD when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down businesses and schools, and remote work began. It was an excellent opportunity for Valerie and Randy to work together again, having owned and operated Subway franchises together in the past. She found she loved the challenge of learning the language of accounting, a renewed appreciation for the experience and expertise of her coworkers and working with who she considers, “the best clients around”. Hosting family and friends for dinner, game nights or just relaxing poolside keeps the Meder house hopping. An avid sports fan, she loves watching her kids compete at the collegiate level and, on any given night, you can find her and Randy enjoying a local high school game/meet/match or cheering on the Spartans at Breslin.
