Salina Karia

Senior Manager



Salina values building and maintaining strong relationships with her clients, from start-ups to very established businesses. She thrives on being a trusted advisor by mentoring her clients through the inevitable ups and downs of owning a business.  She has a special affinity for helping her music clients focus on their artistic creativity, while she addresses the complexities of state tax compliance for artists performing in multiple states.

Salina also takes time to develop our newer tax professionals by serving as a mentor with Geffen Mesher’s Advisor program. Outside the office, Salina gives back to the community by serving on the Board of Directors for the Northwest Pilot Project.

As a competitive soccer player for most of her life, Salina brings that same passion, dedication, and focus to her work and home life today. When not serving her clients, she appreciates unplugging by spending quality time with her husband and young son
