Laurel worked with her mother since she was a child and has grown up in the world of finance. Having been born and raised in Port Townsend, she is Port Townsend's only "locally produced" CPA! After graduating with her accounting degree from the University of Washington's Foster School of Business in 2015, she set out to pursue her CPA. Her personal life has inspired her to take a keen interest in unique situations surrounding working abroad and nonresident aliens.
2016 was a monumental tax season, with baby Porter arriving just two weeks before the tax deadline! Laurel looks forward to having her son grow up with the adoration of friends and clients, the way she grew up! Porter is often found roaming the office. He loves to visit with clients!
Following in her mother's footsteps, Laurel is also an avid traveler. She has traveled around the world and spent time teaching in South Africa as a volunteer. But no matter where in the world she is, she is always available to her clients!
Having grown up in Port Townsend and now having a son, Laurel is an invested member of the community. She is passionate about preserving the qualities that make Port Townsend the incredible place it is. She is also passionate about modernizing the practice to allow for more electronic communication. She understands the busy lives of today's workforce and seeks to make tax time (and all financial dilemmas) as easy for clients as possible. Whether it be a face-to-face meeting, a Zoom chat, or uploading documents electronically, she is eager to make sure clients' needs are being met!
