Carlsborg firm staffer gets CPA license

Gregory Voyles, a staff accountant at George R Braly CPA of Carlsborg, was recently licensed as a Washington State Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

Voyles grew up in Sequim and graduated from Sequim High School. He has a bachelor of arts degree in environmental education, and a bachelor of science degree in accounting. He has worked for the National Park Service (Yosemite, Olympic and Haleakala) as a park ranger, for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as a program analyst/government accounting, and he most recently owned and operated an insurance agency in Port Angeles, originally a family business.

Employers say Voyles passed all four sections of the CPA exam on his first attempt and is currently waiting for paperwork to be processed on his Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) credential (he has already passed the exam and met other licensing requirements).

Voyles plans to focus on tax matters, and fraud/forensic accounting/data analytics.
