Originally beginning her public accounting career with SL through an audit internship and subsequent full time assurance position in 2014, Kristin re-joined the business services team at Smith Leonard in 2020 after a few years away to work in private industry. In her prior time at Smith Leonard, she was heavily focused on assurance compilations, reviews, and employee benefit plan audits. Including her time away, she brings over 5 years of experience working with both public and privately-held companies, including the nuances of bookkeeping and client accounting services for private business. This experience will allow her to expand into her new role providing bookkeeping and business services for Smith Leonard clients.
