Our Story

We are a family owned Pacific Northwest tax firm since 1988.

In 1988, Randy started her own tax firm in downtown Seattle, which grew to over 800 individual tax clients as well as many trusts and corporations. In 2011, Randy sold the firm with the intention of doing more art, community activism, and spending more time with her family.

But Randy’s daughter, Deva, had a different idea — a request that Randy pass the baton and teach her tax. Ever entrepreneurial, and apparently not at all ready to retire, Randy was thrilled and opened a new firm to teach Deva with real-world experience. Now, 7 years later, Deva and Randy have become partners and renamed the firm Joseph & Hetrick, LLC.

Having a boutique firm fits their style perfectly. With just the two of them, this close working model allows them to know their clients deeply — finances, dreams, goals, and challenges.

Meet the Founders

Randy’s father was a career IRS man. Although Randy started out in the arts with a degree in theatre performance, she quickly followed her father’s footsteps and started working at the IRS as a tax auditor. After 4 years, she went back to school at UCLA for her accounting and tax credits, and then went to work for a CPA firm in Los Angeles. There she absorbed the culture of excellence, solid thinking & research, as well as the importance of kindness and close attention to clients. She and her husband moved up to Seattle where she opened and ran her own tax firm for 23 years before starting Joseph & Hetrick, LLC with her daughter, Deva.

Community activism is a big part of Randy’s life outside of tax, mostly centered around Kadima and her social justice work. She is also passionate about reading, the arts, and the whole foods plant-based lifestyle. The rest of her free time is spent with her wonderful husband, two daughters, and three grandchildren.

Deva is not the typical accountant. Before becoming an Enrolled Agent, she received a BA in Studio Art at Colorado College. She then became a professional poker player for several years, both traveling for live tournaments and cash games as well as playing online. Starting in 2013 she undertook the study of federal income tax law, mentored by Randy. Deva loves that this profession, like poker, blends math and strategy with a human component. Her favorite part is getting to know each client and helping them transform stress into calm.

Deva spends most of her free time with her husband and son working in the garden, adventuring outside, and creating art. She is also dedicated to supporting good causes like Mercy for Animals, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the It Gets Better Project.
