Life at KKAJ
"We work together at KKAJ. Everyone is eager to help each other succeed."
At the Office
I enjoy what I do: Connecting with clients and building special relationships with them. The services I provide clients include accounting and bookkeeping, personal financial management, elder care management and tax preparation. Whether a client is new to QuickBooks® and needs to start from the beginning or is an experienced QuickBooks® user in need of technical support, I’m here to help. My work is very satisfying, but it’s the professional atmosphere and family-focused culture within the office that lets me know this is the place I want to be.
Outside of work, I enjoy moving about. It may not sound too exciting at face value, but activity in general is what motivates me. In fact, I would gladly trade in my desk for a treadmill. Whether going for a long walk during my lunch hour or visiting the gym after work, I am always moving. I also enjoy tennis and spending time with my husband and three sons. And one more thing: I have a reputation as an avid Los Angeles Lakers fan. Go Lakers!

At the Office
I made a conscious choice to start my career with a firm where I wanted to end up. I am very pleased with my decision and can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work each day. During our busy seasons I work on different tax-related projects. When not in tax season, I focus on tax planning and consulting based on each client’s needs.
When interviewing with the firm, I saw how involved the partners were in their communities - that impressed me. Bigger firms weren’t able to demonstrate that same level of outside involvement. Add to that, many of us at KKAJ have common interests, including sports. Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my family, voluenteering at my church, working out, and any activity outdoors.

"I have had a relationship with KKAJ for nearly two decades. Not only have they been the constant professionals offering financial and taxation assistance, but the entire firm has treated me as though I'm family. Perhaps better than family, but the point is there has always been an unparalleled covenant of trust."
