Emily Thomsen

Emily joined Hellam Varon’s trust and estate group in 2018, bringing several years of experience in public accounting along with enthusiasm, motivation, and a sharp intellect to address the varied challenges clients can face during challenging life transitions. As part of our trust and estate group, Emily serves affluent individuals and their families, specializing in individual, estate, gift, and trust taxation and advisory services. Emily loves the complex ever-changing nature of the income and estate tax planning landscape, but especially values helping clients navigate these complexities to meet and achieve their goals.

Personable and knowledgeable, Emily is perfect for trust and estate work. By arming her clients and their advisors with information, analysis, and advice specific to their needs, Emily helps her clients meet their income and estate tax planning goals. She appreciates collaborating with her highly knowledgeable, kind, and experienced colleagues and remarks, “We’re a resource not only to our clients, but to each other… at Hellam Varon, you aren’t just a client…you’re our client.”

Born and raised in Washington, Emily is all about family. She loves spending time with her parents and brother, and (most importantly) with their English bulldogs, Isabelle, Annabelle, and Pumpkin. She is a cat owner herself to her newest fur baby, Luna. Emily grew up camping and hiking with her family, although when asked about her favorite activity, she mentions that she does like a good nap or reading a good book to recharge. We hit the jackpot when Emily chose Hellam Varon as her professional home!
