Kristin Cornell

I pride myself in taking an empathetic approach to understanding my client's needs and challenges and providing exceptional client service by offering proactive solutions and resources. I find great fulfillment in developing long-lasting client relationships and becoming my client's most trusted advisor.

OVERVIEW

Kristin provides audit and other assurance services to a variety of clients, primarily in the commercial, dealership, nonprofit and employee benefit plan spaces.

When you work with Kristin, you can expect her to take the time to understand your company, to dig deep into what makes your organization run and thoughtfully analyze solutions. Kristin is responsive, values her client relationships and takes a hands-on approach.

Outside of work, Kristin loves spending time with her husband and four children in the great outdoors, either boating or camping. Kristin also enjoys cheering her children and their teammates on - at embarrassingly loud levels - from the sidelines of their sporting events. When traveling, there's no where she'd rather be than the sunny, sandy shores of Hawaii.
