Bellingham accounting firm Varner Sytsma Herndon recently announced the addition of two new staff members and the professional certification of another.
Tessa Rhone Ebbesen, CPA, joined VSH as a staff accountant. Ebbesen, a Bellingham native, graduated from Western Washington University’s school of business in 2007 and earned her master’s degree in professional accounting there in 2009. In her free time Ebbesen enjoys running, hiking and snowboarding.
Ryan Dales will also be joining VSH’s accounting team. Dales stayed close to his hometown of Sedro-Woolley to graduate from WWU with a degree in accounting in 2008. He earned his MBA at the school a year later. Dales spends his time away from the books alongside his wife, pushing their son in a stroller or pulling the baby bike carrier.
Jessica Poling, who joined the firm in January, has passed all sections of the CPA exam. Poling graduated from WWU’s school of business with honors in 2009. She was born and raised in Mount Vernon, and enjoys golfing, camping, and reading.
