“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.’” 

Katherine established herself as a successful loan underwriter in the banking industry prior to switching her focus to accounting. She spent 7 years with Wells Fargo before returning to school to study accounting. Upon graduating in 2018, she joined the HRC team. As a staff accountant in the firm’s Audit Department, Katherine specializes in performing audits of small nonprofit organizations and providing detailed bookkeeping services for multi-location, multi-owners doctors’ offices. Additionally, she has experience performing multiple audits of a specific element for sales of an advertising company at a specified location.

An efficient and friendly professional, Katherine constantly seeks to provide high quality service to both her clients and her peers. Those who work with her love how she is engaged, thoughtful, and detailed in her work. Katherine is inspired in her daily life by her mother, who was unexpectedly diagnosed with late-stage terminal cancer seven years ago. Despite doctors’ dire predictions, Katherine’s mother fought hard and beat the odds. This experience changed the way that Katherine sees seemingly impossible obstacles. She knows that she can achieve anything and has an unwavering desire for success as a result. This makes her a great asset for her clients.

Raised in sunny Downey, California, Katherine moved to Las Vegas in her senior year of high school. She still resides in the city and is now married with three children. Katherine likes Las Vegas for its close-knit professional community. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, running, and visiting theme parks.
