What is an EA?
Business & Accounting Manager
Kelly began working at Hettick Accounting in October of 2012. Since working here, she has continued to learn and grow as a professional taking on new responsibilities and continuing her accounting education. As the Business & Accounting Manager, Kelly is in charge of small business accounting, social media, communication, and the office workflow.
After graduating from Seattle Pacific University in 2009 with a B.A. in Individual and Family Development, Kelly moved to Mexico to volunteer at an orphanage for 2 years. She has enjoyed working in the family business with her mom and learning the ins and outs of the accounting profession. Kelly and Kathy spend a lot of time together outside the office and Kelly feels so blest to have the best boss-mom / mom-boss out there!
In her free time, Kelly enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 children. She also enjoys walking, wine tasting, traveling, going on adventures, and the outdoors.
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; she enjoys getting to know each of our clients on a personal level.
Erin has lived in the Maple Valley area with her husband and 2 young daughters for the last 5+ years. Moving from the vast openness of Wyoming, they immediately fell in love with the lush greenery and unrivaled weather patterns the PNW is so known for. 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 here, at Hettick Accounting, in the adorable community of Enumclaw.
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. She also enjoys singing and making music with her siblings from around the country.
