Please welcome PTCREW’s newest member

We are excited to announce another new member.  Please join me in welcoming Kristi Johnsen, CPA, Senior Associate LBA Haynes Strand, PLLC.

Kristi Johnsen      Kristi Johnsen is a Senior Associate in the Greensboro, NC office.  Kristi graduated from the University of Alabama with a BS in Commerce & Business Administration with an emphasis on accounting.

Kristi’s favorite part of being a certified public accountant is assimilating numbers and producing valuable management advice to pass on to her clients.  Kristi focuses on corporate and individual taxes at LBA Haynes Strand, providing great client service along the way.  When asked why she became an accountant, Kristi said, “I like the fact that in an ever changing world, some things just balance.”  After graduating from college, Kristi worked at several CPA firms in Atlanta, GA.  In 1993, Kristi relocated to North Carolina and acquired her CPA licensure in the state.  She has worked in accounting, communication, and educational fields in various capacities throughout her career.  Her diverse background and skill set makes her a key piece of the LBA Haynes Strand team.

 

When she’s not in the office, Kristi loves spending time with her husband and children; watching them play sports, meeting for dinner, or going to college football games.  Kristi also enjoys reading, especially at the beach!
