Mary Ann Dougherty, CPA

Tax Manager

Q. What do you enjoy about Public Accounting?
As a public accounting professional I enjoy applying my technical knowledge in the areas of accounting, tax and financial matters to the broad range of situations that affect businesses, individuals, trusts and estates.  My primary goal is to work with clients to develop a framework that allows them to effectively and efficiently meet their personal goals, while considering their unique personal situations.

Q. Why do you like working at KWC?
KWC provides a setting that encourages team work while providing high quality services to our clients.  The KWC team fosters an environment to promote the development of strong bonds between KWC personnel and clients, resulting in a vested interest in providing a high quality of service to our clients.

Q. What do you enjoy doing outside of the office?
A work vs. life balance is important to being a well grounded individual, as well as a dedicated KWC professional.  One of my outside interests is encouraging the participation of children in tennis.  For many years I have been involved in teaching tennis basics to children and coaching elementary and junior high school tennis teams in the Northern Virginia area.
