Haley is a native Oregonian, having grown up in Corvallis. After she graduated from Oregon State University, she began in the private industry, working for an international engineering and construction firm where she worked in project accounting and got to dive into the financial analytics of large construction projects. Haley joined Kernutt Stokes in 2007 with a plan of getting her CPA license and then returning to private industry. She soon found that Kernutt Stokes and the team provided everything she was looking for in a career and has stayed with public accounting and the firm ever since.

Under her leadership, the firm’s virtual accounting practice has expanded exponentially. Haley enjoys the people and the dynamic businesses she works with on a daily basis. Virtual accounting gives Haley and her team a front row seat to all of the day-to-day decisions being made by leaders of different businesses. She likes that she gets to be not only to be part of the Kernutt Stokes family but her clients as well.

Haley and her husband Greg live in Eugene with their two young daughters. They enjoy rooting on the Beavs, camping, and spending time together. Her husband is a CFO for a local company, and if there is ever a lull in their conversation, she says they can talk Excel functions or financial ratios.
