Joe Purvis

CPA | Principal


Whenever his family opens the closet to pick a board game, you can bet it’ll be Joe who takes on the role of banker in Monopoly and keeps things fair. When he’s not playing party games, Joe can be found flipping through a multitude of novels and making sure his client’s own books are in order.

As a principal in the firm’s Audit and Assurance Services Group, Joe focuses on serving clients in the healthcare industry and the not-for-profit sector. He also performs compliance audits for various organizations. Joe’s technical skills and exceptional attention to detail provide a valuable resource for clients with whom he works. He enjoys the challenge of working through complex accounting issues and being a source of technical knowledge to those he works with.
