About Us

Peak Performance Accounting & Consulting is a Baltimore, Maryland company that is committed to your success.

Founded by Kate Shamis in 2015, Kate is an experienced accountant who earned her bachelor’s degree in accounting from Villa Julie College as well as a Master’s degree in Forensic Accounting with a concentration in analysis of financial statements.

Kate is passionate about “digging in” when working with clients and their numbers and particularly enjoys helping clients interpret their financials for purposes of strategic planning and managed growth.

After being an auditor with a public accounting firm for a couple years, she moved to private firms, serving as a staff accountant, financial analyst and controller before choosing the entrepreneurial path.

While she liked the variety at a public firm, she liked the “all for one, one for all” team atmosphere of private firms.

By opening her own firm after 12 years of working for others, she gets the best of both worlds: variety and intimacy.

Peak Performance provides a variety of services to organizations in different industries and organizations of different sizes—from start-ups to multi-million-dollar companies.
