Erin was pleased to join Hettick Accounting in December of 2019. In 2020, she completed the Comprehensive Income Tax Course and is looking forward to using her knowledge and continuing to expand upon it. As the Office Administrator, Erin is in charge of the day-to-day flow of the office, intake and data entry of tax and accounting information, and supporting both Kathy and Kelly. She is grateful to work for such a warm-hearted company with an equally incredible clientele.

Erin lives in the Maple Valley area with her husband and 2 young daughters. Having always enjoyed learning and being an all-around “know-it-all”, it is her tremendous pleasure and privilege to support and work alongside Kathy and Kelly. Her administrative career has taken her from fitness clubs to coal mines, from Wyoming to Washington, and finally to Hettick Accounting.

In her spare time, Erin enjoys; wildcrafting herbs and plants to make into healing salves and balms, creating art with her children, yelling at the TV with her husband, and taking full advantage of the rarefied climate and outdoor spaces around the area.
