Meet the Culumber Services Team


Kari Culumber


Kari Culumber is the owner of Culumber Services. Kari spent 20 years as a project manager and business analyst and started four businesses before leaving the corporate world to launch Culumber Services.

Initially, Kari created Culumber Services as a bookkeeping business because she missed using her analytical brain and the skills she acquired throughout her career. However, she found that she loves working with business owners and contributing to their success. As a result, she expanded Culumber Services to include project management and consulting services as well.

Kari enjoys spending time with her four kids and completing projects on her small hobby farm.

Kate McSharry

Account Manager

Kate has a decade of experience in recruiting and human resources, including several years at Vulcan, a Seattle-based company managing billionaire Paul Allen’s assets and interests. She has also spent many years in small business, working with everything from bids and scheduling, to email marketing, recruiting, and payroll.

“A place for everything, and everything in its place” is Kate’s motto. She loves to organize and sees bookkeeping as organizing with numbers. Kate is a problem solver and a people person. She loves to meet and work with new people.
