Hayley
Cornelius Almaraz, CPA

Senior Manager
Hayley first joined ATKG in 2012 as an intern and has worked her way up to her current role as Senior Manager.

An alumna of The University of Texas at San Antonio, Hayley graduated Summa Cum Laude as a dual major in accounting and finance, and soon after received her Master of Accountancy as well as her CPA license.

Hayley has experience across multiple industries, including real estate, oil & gas, family offices, and farm & ranch. Staying true to her roots, she particularly loves working with farm & ranch clients because it reminds her of home where she grew up hunting and helping her parents with their own cattle. These days though, Hayley has traded her boots for a pair of Nikes and can often be found at her local CrossFit gym after work where she enjoys tapping into her competitive spirit and working up a sweat.

Hayley often gets the travel bug, but her favorite state is Texas (duh—Texas Forever!) With every landscape and season, great food, friendly people (not to mention no state income tax!) it was an easy choice for her to make. She especially loves exploring San Antonio with her husband in search of a great dog-friendly patio in which to have coffee (or an adult beverage) with two-legged and four-legged friends alike. Good news for Hayley—there is plenty of ATKGers with fun loving dogs that would love to join!
