Samantha Ralls is enjoying the sunshine that has welcomed her to Texas. She and her family hail from the Pacific Northwest, and she admits it’s nice not to be rained on all the time. Samantha was raised in the Olympia area, which is located about an hour south of Seattle, Washington. One thing she says Texas needs, though, is a better selection of good coffee shops, like she had back home. (A Starbucks on every corner does not constitute “selection!”)

Samantha handles ATKG’s bookkeeping and has been helping clients with accounting and tax preparation for years. Before joining ATKG, she was a staff accountant with Armour Vickerman, PLLC in Tumwater, WA. Before that, she worked her way up at RSM McGladrey in Olympia from a receptionist to being a bookkeeper in their business office.

Samantha is an Army wife, and she and her husband have three children. When we asked her to describe a perfect vacation, she mentioned a cruise, like the one she went on with a friend to the Cayman Islands and Cozumel. Except next time, she’d actually consider bringing the hubby and kids!
