WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT KRISTIN:
“Kristen was amazing to work with. I’m a CPA, and I know my industry, and she still brought recommendations and solutions I hadn’t considered. Candidly, I didn’t expect to get a lot of value beyond the required review report, but I certainly did. Working with her was a great experience – I will recommend (and have already recommended) to anyone.”

“Kristen is highly responsive, knows our industry cold, and is truly a pleasure to work with.”

“Kristen has been exceptional to work with over the past few years. She is always very kind and attentive and makes my life much easier during our benefit plan audits. I couldn’t imagine completing these audits without her.”

“Kristen is a great communicator, always ensuring that we are on the same page and on track to meet deadlines. She’s always able to provide answers and thoughtful explanations to my questions. Kristen also does a great job working with me to plan the objectives and establish timelines that help ensure the audit goes as smooth as possible.”
