Katie Whitman Achieves CPA Certification


We are thrilled to announce that Katie Whitman has successfully completed the rigorous CPA Exam and has earned the esteemed title of Certified Public Accountant. Our team at Hauser Jones & Sas is incredibly proud of Katie’s dedication and perseverance in reaching this significant career milestone.

Katie’s path into accounting was unexpected. She initially had little interest in the field, but after a career change, she took an accounting class that sparked a new passion. Katie became fascinated by tax work in particular. This led her to a fateful meeting with Heather Martin, one of our senior tax managers, at a WSCPA recruiting event. Katie made an impression, and soon after she began interning at HJ&S. Her skills and drive were evident, and she transitioned to a full-time role after impressively passing the CPA exam in the summer of 2022.

At HJ&S, Katie’s responsibilities extend far beyond tax preparation. She loves helping clients understand and optimize their tax situations, bringing clarity and relief to even the most complex issues. Katie takes pride in working with a diverse range of clients, from individual filers to businesses across various sectors. Her goal is to provide each client with personalized and effective tax solutions.

Katie appreciates the supportive environment at HJ&S that focuses on growth and feedback. She speaks highly of the firm’s culture, including the flexible scheduling that enables her to balance work and family life as a parent. This reflects the firm’s understanding and progressive approach.

To conquer the exam, Katie dedicated an intensive study period to prepare. Her managers at HJ&S encouraged this focused strategy. Through determination and intellect, Katie cleared all four test sections on her first try—an impressive feat.

Please join us in congratulating Katie Whitman on her well-deserved CPA certification and welcoming her into this exclusive professional circle!
