Kristen joined the firm as a member of the Accounting and Reporting Services (ARS) team in March 2013 and was promoted to Client Services Director a few years later. She graduated from Tyler Junior College in December 2020 with an Associates in Business Administration degree. She plans to begin studying to obtain her Enrolled Agent (EA) designation in 2022.
Her areas of practice include full-charge bookkeeping services, payroll reports preparation, Quickbooks consulting, and income tax preparation and planning for individuals, corporations, partnerships, trusts, and estates.
Kristen grew up in Arizona and moved to East Texas in 1998 and previously worked for Braly and Moore, P.C. for over 11 years. After relocating back to Arizona to be near her family and friends, she realized that living in East Texas was where God wanted her and her family to be, so she moved back to East Texas in 2013.
Kristen, her husband Bobby and their two children, Ruby and Bobby Jr. (Bubba) are members of Green Acres Baptist Church South Campus and active in the Children’s Ministry. Her favorite scripture from the Bible is Proverbs 3:5-6 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.' She remembers this passage when facing difficult decisions and knows that you just have to place whatever you may be going through in God’s hands.
