Karen Stephenson joined Adam Hodson CPA in 2013 and has over 25 years of experience in the accounting field. Prior to working with Adam, Mrs. Stephenson has worked in public accounting and in private industry.
Mrs. Stephenson is a native Nevadan. In 1992, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and went to work for a large local CPA firm. She earned her CPA license in 1994 while working at the firm as a staff accountant.
Mrs. Stephenson was promoted several times and ultimately became a partner of that CPA firm 7 years later. During that time, she worked closely with a large construction company that offered her the position of Chief Financial Officer. After 10 years in public accounting, she decided to take advantage of the opportunity to help grow the company during the construction boom in the early 2000’s. She remained at that Company until 2013 prior to joining Adam Hodson CPA.
In 2001, Mrs. Stephenson was recognized as one of the top 40 business professionals under 40 years old in Southern Nevada by In Business Magazine. She is a member of the Nevada Society of Accountants and has been active in several civic organizations over the years.
