Meet The Tucson Accounting Team
Reba, a graduate of the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management, founded the firm in 2005 with a vision of becoming Tucson’s leading solution for businesses to outsource their bookkeeping. Besides owning the firm, Reba is KA’s business development manager, in which her responsibilities include sales and marketing. She currently serves on the boards of the Tucson Association of Executives and the National Association of Women Business Owners – Greater Tucson.
A natural communicator, Reba previously managed several successful medical businesses in Oklahoma and Nevada, as well as an HVAC business she owned with her husband of 35 years, Mike. They have two adult sons, a grandson and a granddaughter. In her spare time, she enjoys meeting friends over white wine and continually redecorating her 70-year-old midtown home.
Mike is KA’s tax manager, responsible for overseeing client work and implementing systems to improve efficiency and deliver customer satisfaction. He relocated to Tucson in 2007 to join the family accounting firm and assist his mother in its burgeoning growth. Among the KA accounting clients he services are a retirement community, a law firm and a website design company.
Mike earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2000. He spent seven years a staff reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada’s largest newspaper, before switching to a career in accounting, his college minor. He and his wife, Kimberly, have two children, Cooper and Shelby, who were not purposefully named after a make and model of motor vehicles. A devoted lover of music, he spends his spare time digging through record store crates in search of rare vinyl albums.
Our Accounting Manager Nancy joined Kalil & Associates in 2008, holds an associate’s degree in accounting, and is a full-charge bookkeeper and QuickBooks Proadvisor, a designation certifying that she has been tested as an expert user of the software. Among her accounts at KA are a graphic design agency, a homeowners’ association, a developer of high-tech “smart” cameras and a nonprofit organization that delivers meals to the homebound. Before joining us, she had extensive experience handling bookkeeping for advertising and real estate agencies.
Nancy, also assists in KA’s business development and marketing. When not crunching numbers, you might find Nancy crunching opponents on the soccer field or cheering on the four other athletes in her family, her husband George and daughters Alexis, Karina and Ashley.
Linda joined the firm’s accounting staff in May, 2015, bringing with her more than 20 years’ experience in small business accounting and property management. She helps dozens of local businesses with day-to-day bookkeeping and closing accounting periods. Among the KA clients she services are numerous construction contractors and an array of nonprofit organizations, including a charter school and a religious mission serving Africa and Asia.
Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Linda moved to Tucson with her husband, Ken, in 2012 after raising three beautiful daughters. When she’s not crunching numbers, Linda enjoys exploring and touring Arizona on the back of Ken’s motorcycle.
Karen brings 30 years of accounting experience and a ready laugh to the Kalil & Associates team. After earning a BS in Accounting from Arizona State University, the hospitality industry benefited from her diligence and talent until she joined us. Karen has been married 24 years to a retired military officer, with whom she has a son, a University of Arizona student. An avid concert-goer, she also enjoys exercising, reading and cheering on baseball teams.
