Katie Van Wyngarden

Katie Van Wyngarden is a Atwood Financial Associate and Enrolled Agent located in Eastern Washington. 

Before starting at Atwood Financial, Katie worked as a tax accountant helping individual’s and small businesses understand their taxes and stay in compliance with the IRS. A self-proclaimed finance nerd from a young age, Katie has enjoyed learning about all aspects of personal finance, and helping to apply them to the finances of friends and family. 

After hearing many friends and peers struggling with understanding their finances, Katie decided to start a blog to help people understand their finances and reduce their stress or anxiety over finances.  Katie believes by following a few base principals, everyone can feel in control of their money and look forward to building wealth. 

  • Spend less than you earn
  • Give your excess money a “job”
  • Spend according to your personal values

Katie realizes that financial planning can seem scary and overwhelming at the start. Using the Atwood Financial proven process, Katie is able to take the mystery out of your finances to give you relevant financial guidance based on your goals and values. She specializes with helping women who are just starting out on their finance journey. 

Katie is originally from the Seattle area and received undergraduate degrees in Accounting and Finance from Washington State University. When Katie is not helping people with their finances, she enjoys traveling, cooking, gardening, and cheering on the WSU Cougars! 

Like all members of the Atwood Financial team, Katie is a fiduciary, who charges by the hour only. She has no affiliations, and collects no commissions for her work.
