Kristina Wharton

Kristina Wharton joined Wellness Capital Management in early 2016. She was promoted to Bookkeeping Operations Lead in late 2017. Kristina has managed her client’s books in the medical, health, wellness, and spa industries for 20 years. She has helped many small businesses move away from literal shoeboxes of receipts to a managed business accounting program where they can see and understand their profitability.

Kristina holds a Bachelor of Science in accounting from Central Washington University. Working as an Assistant Controller for a multi-million-dollar company increased her knowledge of payroll and taxes in multiple states. However, Kristina’s passion has always been for smaller, privately held businesses.


Wellness Capital Management is not a typical bookkeeping and budgeting service and Kristina is not a typical bookkeeper. She analyzes data and customizes it to fit a company’s specific needs. Kristina supervises our staff of phenomenal bookkeepers, ensuring accuracy and timeliness. She helps our clients see where they are today and plan where they need to be in order to gain success and improve profitability. Working remotely, Kristina welcomes the challenge of creating personal and trusted relationships with clients. She takes time to learn the unique details that impact our clients’ daily business and fosters trust and confidence. Kristina is a great communicator and her explanations of business financials breaks things down in a way that clients understand and appreciate.
