Joanne Krusz, CPA

Joanne grew up in Pennsylvania, not far from Philadelphia, before venturing west to attend Arizona State University, where she earned her degree in Statistics. Life’s twists, including marriage, eventually took her to Florida, where she started her career at a small CPA firm on the Southwest Coast. Discovering a passion for the work, she returned to school and qualified as a CPA.

In 2007, family reasons prompted a move to Olympia, Washington. There, Joanne embarked on her career with a public accounting firm in downtown Olympia, before joining StraderHallett in 2016 and becoming a shareholder in 2021. Her professional focus is primarily on individual taxes, though she also prepares returns for entities, estates and trusts, and non-profits.

Currently residing in Lacey, Joanne has plans to move back to the East Coast in the near future. Her leisure time is filled with golfing, playing pickleball, enjoying warm summer days, and cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles.
