We enjoy what we do and our team is focused on quality, efficiency, and consideration for those we work with.

I have been working with PKHB and Matt VanDerbeck in particular since 2009. PKHB has demonstrated their ability to adapt to our growth as an organization as we have grown to over a $35 Million budget with significant State and Federal compliance requirements. PKHB works closely with us to ensure the audit is well planned and executed on budget and on time.
