Kristin Cooper
Tax Preparer

Kristin is our newest tax preparer. She joined us in January 2019 after working as a tax preparer at H&R Block branches on the Olympic Peninsula. In her first months at The Business Guides, she earned certification as a QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor.

For five years Kristin worked as the office manager at Carlson Chiropractic in Port Townsend, managing payments and billing, acting as a liaison to attorneys and insurance companies, and keeping their information technology running smoothly. Before that, she was the office manager at Terry’s Lock and Safe in Port Townsend.

Kristin grew up in California and followed her parents to Jefferson County when they moved to Marrowstone Island. They run a small software company, and Kristin spent five years working in a big software company before following her passion for the creative arts.

She had studied theatre and dance at Sonoma State University, and went on to manage the costume shop at a professional theatre. For a while she made a living as a seamstress and taught sewing classes, in addition to running a small craft business in Newport, Ore.

Kristin was drawn to the tax field through managing the finances of the businesses where she’s been employed for the past decade. In her own words, she enjoys “creating organization from chaos” -- a skill that can always be put to good use preparing tax returns!

These days Kristin is an avid knitter and enjoys her toy poodle companion and island life on Marrowstone.
