What does being a WIFS NE FL Member mean to you?
Being a member of WIFS has enabled me to connect with women who share the same passion about helping others that I do. The members of the NEFL chapter share a common goal of supporting each other and in helping each of us to learn and grow both personally and professionally.
What is the focus of your work?
As a CPA, I work with small business owners and the individuals who own them. Our firm has a niche in the dental industry and we have assisted many dentists with purchasing their first practices or combining a growing practice with like-minded dentists. Personally, I have passion for assisting women who are facing life changing circumstances and helping to guide them through tax and financial situations that many times they have not had to deal with before. As the Director of Operations for the firm, I deal with the issues of running a small business just like many of our clients. From hiring staff and the HR function to making sure our computers and software are up-to-date and everything in-between, I have a unique perspective on the challenges faced by today’s small business owners.
What is a fun fact about you?
I love to ride rollercoasters and have a standing “date” for Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando, Florida with my youngest son, who is now 26 and a Middle School Band Director. We have been going every year since he was in middle school himself!
