Our Team

Kathy has worked in the Austin financial, tax preparation, and bookkeeping industry for over 30 years.  Her initial training was in bookkeeping and tax preparation which soon branched into small business bookkeeping, office management, building management, financial management and investment counseling.  Over the first fifteen years in the industry, Kathy came in contact with so many small business owners who were frustrated, and floundering.  Kathy knew that she had the knowledge and expertise to help their businesses succeed.  So, she started her own small business, Akin Business Service, in 1987. Over the next 26 years her experience grew to include estate planning, trust, business and investment management.​
