First off, we are welcoming back Beccie Beck, who has returned to work as staff accountant in our new Olympia office location. Beccie is looking forward to working with our Olympia area clients, and will be providing accounting services, including payroll and excise reporting, as well as accounting software support and review services.
Additionally, Katie Arnold is being promoted to the role of manager at our Shelton office. She will become more involved in the management of the overall firm, as well as responsible for managing the firm in Mike’s absence. The Shelton office staff will remain the same, as Sheri Burgess and Chrissy Hammond will continue in their roles as staff accountants on the WCPA team.
On the education front, Katie is continuing her studies in accounting so she can complete her bachelor’s degree, with the goal of obtaining her CPA certification. Chrissy is nearing the completion of her master’s degree in business administration and also has her sights set on obtaining her CPA certification. As is the case each year, all staff members will be participating in continuing education programs throughout the rest of the year, in order to fortify their knowledge in accounting principles, and payroll and excise compliance matters.
