Meet Ethan M. Kirchner

Like his accounting partner Abigail Murray, Ethan M. Kirchner is also a child of California who ultimately trekked down to our little patch of land here in deep South Texas. In fact, Ethan has called McAllen his home since 1993; that is until he decided to take a dive into the gratifying yet complex world of accounting.

Ethan honed his accounting prowess at Texas A&M University in College Station, where he graduated in 1999 and earned his Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. From there, he worked tirelessly to become a Certified Public Accountant by the Texas Board of Accountancy in 2004. During this period of his life, he mastered:

  • Extensive tax preparation for both personal and business returns.
  • General ledger and financial statement preparation for multiple industries.
  • High-level analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Financial systems assessments and processes and implementing controls and efficiencies.

For quite some time after, Ethan delivered quality accounting as a sole practitioner, but the warm climate, rich culture, and sheer heart and helpful spirit that emanates from the Rio Grande Valley compelled him to come back. After he arrived, he also participated as a board member for a local nonprofit charitable organization Friends for Hope, an organization dedicated to helping local children who are fighting cancer.

In time, Ethan made his way back to the Valley where he began working with Abby back in 2012. It was then when he realized that two heads working in tandem within the accounting space were always better than one.

As a result of this partnership, Ethan sees how happy clients are when he takes care of their accounting needs in a manner that is akin to their accounting firm’s dedicated and friendly trademark.

Like Abby, Ethan shares a desire to help clients navigate through the complex rules and processes of accounting, which was a major deciding factor in teaming up with Abby to deliver unmatched accounting services.

When Ethan isn’t reviewing a balance sheet or preparing a client’s taxes, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 7-year-old son.
