Karen joined KHA in 2009, providing tax, accounting and consulting services to a variety of individual and business clients.
Her career began in industry accounting at Mobil Oil Corporation in Dallas, Texas. She worked in various departments including Exploration and Producing, Manufacturing, and finally Corporate Federal Tax Compliance where her love for tax accounting began. With an entrepreneurial spirit, she established her own accounting practice in 1986, working with individuals and small businesses in the areas of tax preparation and planning, business plan development, and accounting services. A move out of Dallas brought her to Flower Mound, where she found a great team of professionals to work with at KHA.
