Meet Kathy
Comforter | Confidence Creator | Planner | Interpreter

When the situation presents some intricacies, Kathy dives in. Clients say Kathy creates confidence;
they feel comfortable talking tax, estate and retirement planning with her. She specializes in providing
tax planning and compliance services for individuals, businesses, guardianships, estates and trusts.
Plus, she works easily and often with other financial professionals, including attorneys, to oversee
clients’ tax plans.

Offering perspectives and interpretation of the many financial documents involved in your estate and
trusts gives Kathy great satisfaction, and a strong connection to her passion: estate planning. Look for
Kathy to resolve issues and give you a sense of ease and trust, and a financial future that creates
confidence.

Kathy is instrumental in the firm’s Foreign Entity Section which assists with tax compliance and accounting
services for international businesses.

Perspectives from Kathy

“The best part of any work day is when a client comes in, I interpret his information and make
sure it’s understood, and he then says he’s enjoyed talking to me. That’s not your typical response
to a meeting with an accountant.”

“The most important asset I can provide is helping people understand their complex financial affairs.”

      Many nonprofits who sponsor ERISA 403(b) plans are not aware that they need an audit, because counting participants involves much more than knowing how many full-time employees the organization has or how many account balances are in the plan.
