Kathy Cantu, CPA


Kathy Cantu

I work alongside my clients providing consulting throughout the year so they can grow their business and understand what they should expect when their tax return is complete. The client interaction is what keeps me engaged.


I consult and interact with my clients so they can focus on their business and trust that their accounting needs are in good hands.

My communication varies for each client and is tailored to their needs. I introduce clients to at least one additional person on my team so clients can always hear back from us within a day or two - their needs are important to us.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. We have been lucky enough to coach their soccer teams for seventeen seasons while now sitting back supporting them in their high school teams. We also enjoy fishing and spending time with our animals.
