Katye Maxson-Landis is irreverent, inquisitive, and professionally skeptical of just about everything. She received her Certified Public Accountant (CPA) credential in 2011 after working in the salt mines of public accounting for 7 years as an auditor and staff accountant and as a bookkeeper for 10 years before that. She is a problem solver, unafraid of a challenge and is hated by her therapist’s Pomeranian. She’s loyal, generous, interested in advancing the application of accounting for the Cannabis industry to a gold standard and prolific in the art of using colorful colloquialism.
Katye received BA’s in both Technical Theatre (Stage Management) and English literature in 1993 from Hastings College in Hastings, Nebraska. She then enjoyed several years of eclectic careers in food service, speaking loudly and bartending, opportunities that liberal arts degrees typically promote. To name a few seemingly unrelated jobs, she owned an electrical contracting business, worked in currency conversion software support for the roll out of the Euro, coordinated an alternative drug court in Multnomah County and ran several indigent criminal defense firms in Portland Oregon, finally, earning a Post Baccalaureate in Accounting from Portland State University.
She is a mother of two vivacious and often opinionated little girls while somehow remaining married for 20 years. In creating Moxy Accounting, she is working to bring balance to the insane timelines of accounting while acknowledging the importance of humor and professional standards. She is a trusted advisor, professional and business educator, enthusiast and highly sought after CPA. Come by for a cup of tea!
