If you wanted to describe Kathryn E. Humecki & Associates, Ltd, you might use the word “driven”. Every day we challenge ourselves to learn more and do more to serve our clients.
Kathryn’s own story embodies this goal. After 15 years as a postal worker, she decided to pursue something she might enjoy and spent nights and weekends studying to get a degree in accounting. She got her CPA license shortly after and opened her firm in 2005.
Although she enjoyed tax planning, her clients still needed a lot of financial guidance. They’d gone to other advisors but always felt like they were only getting a sales pitch. Couldn’t she help them plan for retirement as well? Never one to turn away a client in need, she got her financial planning licenses and expanded her practice to provide holistic wealth management.
It wasn’t much later that Kathryn’s own family compelled her to expand her area of expertise. Her sister, Laura, had been born with an intellectual disability and wasn’t able to take care of herself. She’d always lived with their mother, but Kathryn would soon be taking over the role of care provider.
What started as an effort to find daytime care for Laura turned into the realization that there were lots of government support and services available if they’d only known. Although her mom had hired a planner, there wasn’t even a financial provision in place for Laura’s future. That’s when Kathryn realized what a significant gap there was in knowledgeable help for families like hers. She decided to dedicate herself to the work. Once again, KHA would expand their area of expertise — this time in special needs planning.
Ashton, too, is committed to providing exceptional financial advice to our clients. At just 20, she joined KHA while putting herself through school. She’s now a licensed CPA and a cum laude graduate with a Bachelor’s in Accounting. She also has a Master of Business Administration in Accounting and is a junior partner at the firm.
Together, they’ve built KHA into one of the leading firms in the area. Our high standards, devotion and specialized staff make the difference between our outstanding service and that of other firms. It’s reflected in our reputation and the high standards we demand of ourselves, which is what we deliver to you.
