Tax Director
Annette’s role as an ATKG director is a bit unique as she wears several specialty hats for the firm.

Annette currently serves as the leader of the firm’s State and Local Tax practice. She brings 25+ years of public accounting experience to the team in the areas of federal tax, state tax and recruiting. She loves using her analytical strengths and research skills to develop strategies for clients in the realm of multi-state income tax, franchise tax, sales and use tax, and property tax. Additionally, her work at a major beverage company gave her an insider’s perspective on manufacturing, importing and the beverage industry in general, as well as a lifelong appreciation for beer!

A CPA and a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio with a bachelor’s degree in accounting, Annette still enjoys recruiting rock star interns from her alma mater. She previously served as the firm’s chief talent scout for over 10 years and is responsible for identifying and recruiting the vast majority of our current ATKG team.

Annette has a passion for helping the next generation of professionals succeed by serving as a member of the UTSA Accounting Advisory Board and the Texas A&M San Antonio College of Business Advisory Council. She is also a co-founder of the San Antonio chapter of Chicktime, a volunteer organization that, locally, serves teens at Boysville.

While cooking and baking top Annette’s interest list, she’s also an avid practitioner of yoga and Pilates, which keeps all those potential sins in their proper place. And, she loves taking memorable vacations with family and friends.

‘‘Very personable and knowledgeable. Over the years, I have created great relationships with Teryn Grater, Diane White, and the seniors and managers on my account.’’
