Email Krystle Dean

Krystle started working for WNDE as an intern in 2007.  After graduation with her bachelor’s degree, she began working full-time for WNDE.  As a Tax Manager, she manages a wide array of clients, including partnerships, corporations, individuals (including U.S. citizens living abroad) and trusts and estates.

In addition to her client work, she mentors WNDE staff and is involved in the firm’s Happiness Committee.  She explained, “I believe it is important to enjoy coming to work every day.  Being on the Happiness Committee, I think we make a big impact on helping to create an environment in which our associates enjoy working.”

Krystle grew up in Huntington Beach.  She was initially a math major in college.  She said, “When I realized that I didn’t see a future in any of the opportunities a degree in math would provide, I decided that I would get into the math world of business.  I was often told that an accounting career provides job security, good pay and positive career advancement.  I knew it was right for me.”

The firm has been a good professional fit for her: “I enjoy working at WNDE because of the friendships I have made over the years not only with my colleagues, but also my clients.”

She is married to husband Josh and lives in Costa Mesa.  They have two children.  Away from the office, Krystle enjoys bike riding at the beach, playing soccer and going to Angels baseball games.
