Kristine McGahan has a heritage of accounting in her family, so it is not a surprise she followed in the footsteps of her mother and grandfather.  Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Kristine and her husband made the big decision to move to Seattle in 2017.  “We love the Seattle area. It felt like home from our first visit,” says Kristine.

Kristine began her accounting career in 2012 in Omaha. She gravitated to public accounting because of the variety of clients and their issues. She feels that at Hellam Varon she can work on a wide range of projects and clients, giving her the opportunity to become an experienced tax generalist. “I also wanted to find an accounting firm where I would know all the people I work with,” comments Kristine. A Google search led her to Hellam Varon, and it was our very good fortune we became her number one choice.

Outgoing, Kristine loves connecting with people, especially when it involves her French bulldog, Oscar. She is definitely not one to let “moss grow”. Along with husband, Joey, Kristine makes good use of the myriad of hiking trails in the Cascades. A love for travel has taken Kristine and her husband to Europe, where they have visited Ireland, London, Paris, and Amsterdam. She also is an avid volleyball fan, both as a player and a coach. Game for any kind of adventure, Kristine says, “I just want to take it all in.” A good motto for living life!
