Faith Hakkarainen

Faith came around to this career because of her love of people and numbers. Before working in the Financial Industry Faith worked as an Avionics technician in the Air Force. While in the military she attained her Bachelor of Business Administration, concentrating on Accounting and Finance and was on the Dean’s List.

After retiring from the Air Force she worked for one of The Big Four accounting firms. Faith still felt that something was missing. It was that sense of good citizenship and contributing to her community. Faith wanted more than just spreadsheets – she wanted to help people. From auditing and assurance she went on to work for Corrections in their finance department. Even though Faith enjoyed her time at Corrections she still felt that there was more that she could do. When her contract with Corrections came to an end it gave her the chance to explore the option to come and work with her husband John and to do the one thing that makes her tick – to help people!

With Faith’s in-depth knowledge of accounting, tax and finance – she is a valuable member of our team. Even though Faith is retired from the military you can still find her giving back to her community. She even sits on a local board where she is the treasurer.

When not working, studying or volunteering, you will find Faith enjoying time with her husband and their cat Austin. Faith and John love to travel but some of the best sights are seen right here in the Valley.
