Kristina Richards, Accountant

kristina-websiteI was born in Lithuania and came to US at the age of 21 on a work and travel visa. I fell in love with this country. When I was offered to extend my visa, I didn’t hesitate. I’ve worked in Denali National park in Alaska, Truckee, California, Virginia Beach, Virginia, Reno, Nevada, and now here in Washougal. After working at Amazon.com for six years, I realized that without a degree I will only be able to go so far. Working at Amazon taught me that I am good with computers and I love numbers. So I enrolled in a community college to earn my degree in accounting. In December of 2016, I am graduating from Portland Community College with an AAS in Accounting. After that, I will be transferring to WSU to complete my bachelor’s degree. I have an AA in chemistry, an accounting clerk certificate, and soon an AA in accounting.

My interests are family, photography, reading books (especially adventure), hiking, and soccer.

I love Riverside because it is family! I love that it’s small, friendly and cares about my kids. I love seeing everybody there every day!
