About Kristin

The Person Behind the Practice:
Kristin Krauskopf, CPA

Since 1985, my team and I have consciously chosen a different approach to the business of accounting. Instead of selling accounting services, my focus has been on developing relationships of trust with select clients. From that relationship platform, I am better able to apply my skills as a CPA, my extensive business experience and the resources I have developed to your specific situation. This helps my clients achieve quality of life and income goals using their business as a vehicle.

Because of this different approach and philosophy, my firm is not right for every business owner. Those who we are a best fit for see a significant impact on their quality of life and income.

Prior to opening my private practice, I was Comptroller of NYREV, Inc., who publishes The New York Review of Books and who owned The London Review of Books, Readers Subscription Book Club, Garden Book Club and The Kirkus Review Service.

I have served as National Secretary of the American Society of Women Accountants. I’ve chaired the Local Practitioners Committee of the New York State Society of CPAs, Westchester Chapter for eight years and appeared on the Society’s Dollar for Dollar cable TV show. I have also been an adjunct instructor at Manhattanville College as well as serving in several capacities with local associations.

My outside interests include all types of needlework, particularly beading. After buying many pieces of handmade beaded jewelry, I learned how to make these myself. This generated orders from friends and eventually sparked a side business. Now I sell my jewelry in three antique centers as well as at events and shows throughout the year.

I live in Mount Vernon with the love of my life and husband of 37 years, Paul Krauskopf. Jewelry making, adopting older BIG dogs, traveling the world and collecting art help expand my right brain and keep me from getting trapped in a box. I attribute my success and happiness to an enthusiastic and positive outlook and the support of a loving man who is willing to make dinner.
