Valarie Pike

CPA, Tax Manager

If you were to create the perfect resume for a tax manager, it would probably look a lot like Valarie Pike’s. Beginning with her degree in business administration, Valarie’s CV tells the story of a CPA with more than 30 years’ experience managing federal and state taxes for individuals, businesses and corporations. Along the way, she’s supervised the federal tax department for a household-name IT company; managed business taxes for clients at a top-five US tax consulting firm; and, at one point, successfully navigated the mind-boggling tax compliance details for more than 125 companies and partnerships. Fortunately for us, Valarie’s journey led her to Kelly CPA, where her formidable knowledge of all things tax makes her a priceless asset. The fact that she’s especially adept at working with the entrepreneurial, out-of-the-box thinkers we serve is a delightful bonus – and may have something to do with the Super Mom skills she honed managing her two teenagers’ academic, band and sports activities. When she’s not working for our clients, Valarie spends much of her time working for her community. She serves on both the Municipal Design District Board and the Parks and Recreation Board in the City of Sachse, Texas – a Dallas suburb. She’s also a supporter of Girl Scouts of America, and a member of the Texas Tech Ex Students Association, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Texas Society of CPAs.
