Spotlight on Kris Josey

kris-joseyKris Josey is the current PNW-ISA Treasurer and manages ArborCare Resources, Inc. in Hailey, ID.

I can’t remember when I actually joined ISA, but have been a Life Member since the early 2000s, and a member of the PNW Chapter at least since then.

I graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a BS in Accounting in May 1989. Upon graduation, I worked as a staff accountant with Coopers & Lybrand’s Denver, Colorado office until November 1992.

I obtained my CPA license in 1992 and later that year, moved to Idaho and worked in a local accounting office until 1996. I then left public practice to be a stay-at-home mom with my two young sons.

In early 1997, I combined my business/accounting knowledge with my husband Bill’s tree care knowledge to start our family business, ArborCare Resources, Inc., where I continue to be actively involved.

In 2003 I was appointed to the ISA’s Finance Committee and in 2014 joined ISA’s Conference and Events Committee.

In my free time I am a regular at the local CrossFit gym or outside enjoying the Sun Valley area skiing/snowboarding, hiking, or mountain biking.

My goal as the Treasurer for the PNW Chapter is to provide a business perspective to the Board as it explores new initiatives and continues to grow membership services for all members.
