Ottinger & Associates, LLC was formed in 1998 by Catherine E. Ottinger, CPA. She wanted to take her five years experience with a national accounting firm and combine them with her six years at a large local firm, in which she was a partner. It was always her desire to start a different type of practice. “... I decided to start my practice by blending the best of both experiences. This allows us to genuinely care about our clients and feel that we are a part of their ‘Team.’ By doing this, we provide complete and thorough work not only satisfactory to our clients but to us as well.”
