Our firm started out in the early 1980s as Heiskell & MacGillivray, when our founders, Doug Heiskell and Andy MacGillivray first hung out their shingle. Over the years, the ownership changed, and, since clients had a tough time spelling it anyway, in 2015 we updated our name to HMA CPA, PS. For the first 30 or so years of its existence, our firm’s offices were in Browne’s Addition, but in 2016 we moved to the Cutter Tower in the downtown Spokane core. In recent years, we also acquired three other existing firms: Engel & Associates, Dorendorf & Associates, and Michael D. Caprye, CPA bringing even greater strength and diversity to the skill set and experience of our staff. In December 2021, Kavadias Group, PLLC was merged into HMA CPA, PS adding lines of service and amazing staff to better serve our clients. HMA’s current owners are Kevin Sell, Laura Hays, Mike Whitmore and Kristi Bushnell.
