Kevin Moncrief is a Southern Californian native whose official title with Optima is Staff Associate in Accounting. This fall, he will begin studying Economics at UCSD, and previously, he attended Sage Creek High School, where he ran track and field.

Kevin’s first job was at Chick-Fil-A, where he worked up to management while in High School. He then worked for a different restaurant for several years before beginning an internship at Optima. While he did not have any experience in the accounting field at the time, he was eager to learn. Kevin was looking for a job that would provide him with business experience while he was still earning his undergrad degree. He says that the opportunity to have worked with Optima’s staff on a range of clients has been absolutely invaluable over this past year.

When not working, Kevin loves to be outside, even if just for a walk in the neighborhood. He enjoys hiking and camping whenever possible, and in particular loves to adventure around Joshua Tree.

His favorite part of Optima’s culture is how the company always tries to make things work for the client and for one other. He is now excited to go back to school this fall, and is looking forward to making new friendships.
