Kimberly Zingale, CPA

Manager

Q. What do you enjoy about public accounting?
Accounting is my second career; after being a graphic designer for eight years, I wanted to do something with a bit more structure, and accounting seemed like a good fit for me. I enjoy the problem-solving aspects of accounting and helping my clients—including bridal shops, consultants, and nonprofits—improve their financial processes so they can focus on running their businesses.

Q. Why do you like working at KWC?
The people here at KWC make all the difference. I’m part of the accounting and audit team, and we’re a close-knit group. We know that we can always count on each other to lend a hand when we’re busy and need help. I also find that folks are very willing to help their clients with issues, both big and small. We really are focused on quality personal service, both internally and externally.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
I like to spend time with my husband and our cats, either inside watching movies by the fire or outside reading in the sun. I also enjoying baking — especially triple-layer cakes — and anything that combines peanut butter and chocolate.
