Irene Walsh, EA


Q. What do you enjoy about Public Accounting?
I enjoy a number of things, but tax planning is my favorite part of public accounting. With compliance work, for the most part, what’s done is done. Planning is where opportunities lie and where I am most valuable to my clients.

Q. Why do you like working at KWC?
Besides enjoying the clients and the work that I do, the firm is incredibly supportive of both my career and personal goals.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
I most enjoy my time spent as a rowing coach for athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities, but I’m happy doing pretty much anything that involves a boat. I am an avid Georgetown basketball fan, and I appease my creative side by doing event floral design.
