Proud of the educational focus of the firm, Kim is especially enthusiastic about the consulting work she does with other companies. She is an open book of tools and strategies that can be used to improve efficiency, be more successful, and effectively empower a small businesses owner. Kim’s philosophy is that if you teach business owners how to understand their own finances, they can then save money, make educated decisions, and—most importantly—know when they need to ask for advice.

Kim is highly knowledgeable when it comes to her job, and she is passionate about continuing her education. Her knowledge is consistently up to date in the areas of Taxation, Benefits, Payroll Compliance, Business Development, Ethics, and much more. When working with Kim, no less than complete dedication is what can be expected. She is a professional with intelligence and business savvy to spare, and when it comes to her clients there is no length she won’t go to ensure their success and future growth.
