Kristen N. Bennington, CPA started her career in public accounting while still living in the State of Michigan.  After her family relocated to the State of Texas Kristen followed within a year.  Upon arrival in Texas, Kristen
went back to work in the public accounting arena where she worked for 11 years.  In the evening she attended the University of Houston Central Campus.

After spending 11 years with two local & regional CPA firms an opportunity came about with a publicly traded
company that owned 1,000 plus gasoline, convenience store and marketing locations.  Within one year she was promoted to assistant tax manager.

Having three years working as an assistant tax manager in a publicly traded environment with a long daily drive from the Clear Lake area to the far north side of Houston another opportunity came about which allowed Kristen to work closer to home in the Texas City area as the controller for a group of Home Health entities.  Kristen was with this group of companies until El Paso Corporation made her an offer as a Tax Principal that was hard to pass up.

Kristen spent 7 years with El Paso Corporation in the tax department until TransCanada purchased ANR Pipeline and at that time elected to take their severance package.

Since having left El Paso Corporation Kristen has held a controllers position with a Beer & Wine Distributor until that entity was sold and from that time she went back into public accounting as a contractor while she has continued to grow her own CPA firm.

Kristen graduated from the University of Houston with a BBA in Accounting.  She earned her Certified Public Accountant designation with the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy in 1990.

Kristen brings vast experience and knowledge in the area of business and individual tax, payroll and accounting.  She enjoys working with individuals and small business owners to find workable solutions to meet their growing and changing needs.  Kristen's goal has been that of building long-term relationships with her clients built upon mutual respect and trust.

Kristen believes in giving back to the community whenever she can and has spent countless hours volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and various local charities as well as pet rescue organizations.  Kristen says had she not gone into public accounting she would have pursed a career in the veterinary arena.
