Laura Holmes Shope, EA

After graduating from California State University, Sacramento with a BS in Business Administration, concentrations in Accounting and International Business, I relocated to Seattle where I worked with two local CPA firms, developing my skills in Taxation and Bookkeeping. In Seattle, I graduated from Ashford University with a BA in Business Administration, concentrations in Finance and Economics. I bring experience from working with clients in various industries, including Fitness, Manufacturing, Restaurants and Professional Services. I am committed to bringing the most accurate accounting services to my clients and the best customer service possible.

Outside of work, I enjoy family time with my husband, Ryan, our dog, Boogie, our son, Miles, born June of 2018 and our daughter, Lydia, born October of 2020. I’m an avid swimmer and am the Treasurer of the Pacific Master’s Local Swimming Committee. I also love to cook and try new recipes, travel, and read.
