Fluent in Spanish, Erika not only brings her administrative expertise to the table but also a warm and friendly demeanor that instantly puts clients at ease. She upholds the guiding principle of treating others as she would like to be treated, ensuring every client interaction is characterized by kindness and understanding. Erika excels at explaining complex topics to clients in a way that is clear and free from technical jargon.

Roxy, the canine security specialist at CPA KPA, takes her job very seriously—keeping a keen eye out for potential intruders like squirrels and the notorious printer jam gremlin who haunts the office. With her tail-wagging enthusiasm, she's always ready to spread love and slobbery kisses to anyone who needs a pick-me-up. When she's not busy protecting the office, you can find her perfecting her begging skills at the dinner table. Don't be fooled by her innocent face—she's a master manipulator when it comes to getting extra treats and extra pets!

I know I can completely trust Kyle

I am not a tax accountant and I don’t have the time or expertise to do taxes. I had no idea I could actually enjoy working with an accountant until Kyle started helping me. I know I can completely trust Kyle and having him on my side really brings peace of mind during tax season. I highly recommend using CPA KPA to those thinking of seeking professional accounting services.
