I’ve been working since I was 15 years old. Working hard my whole life has helped shape my work ethic.
As head of the Not-for-Profit niche, Colette Kamps works exclusively with the not-for-profit industry handling audits, reviews and compilations, consulting and tax returns. She serves many types of nonprofit organizations including health care, social services, arts and cultural, membership associations, schools, foundations and religious organizations, as well as organizations requiring Single Audits.
Colette loves working with the nonprofit industry because the people she gets to work with are so passionate about what they do.
Before joining Henry+Horne in 2003, Colette worked in private company accounting for six years at an investigative and litigation support company and a retail furniture business.
Outside of work, you can find Colette running or hanging out by the pool. She also loves to travel. Her favorite place she has visited is Bora Bora, so it’s no surprise that she and her husband hope to retire to a sunny beach location or sail on a catamaran.

Where did you grow up, and why aren’t you there now?
