Chris Sullivan, CPA

Managing Partner

As a Partner of the firm, Chris aligns strategy with vision for our VSH team. She is driven by growth and responsibility, and is a continuous learner on a business level and personally, which translates directly into what she enjoys most about partnering with the clients she serves: Helping them to grow and succeed in business. This extends to her goals for our team at VSH as well – continuous learning and a focus on excellence.

One of the most common misconceptions about accounting is the idea of being tethered to a desk. At VSH, we actively partner with business owners, to advise them on the critical focus factors including cash flow, tax implications, strategic partnerships and business transition. Chris specializes in Business Advisory and International Taxation.

Chris earned her bachelor’s degree from Western Washington University, and gives back to our community through service on the U.S. Bank Advisory Board, Hospice Community Foundation, and the Accounting Advisory Board for Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics. She has previously served as a board member of Technology Alliance Group and Whatcom Museum Foundation.

Fun fact: Chris loves to travel. She trains in advance for her destinations, since they often include climbing 100’s of stairs to the top of a Cathedral. As you may imagine, Chris is an excellent planner of her family vacations. Feel free to reach out to learn more on best laid plans for your international travel. Warning: You may need to put your sneakers on!
