I’ve always loved business and entrepreneurship. Growing up, I had the chnace to watch my fahter create and run his buiness . At the age of 17, I had created a tracking system to maximze profit & implemented key indicators to eliminate potential theft in one of largets reatil shops in town. I’ve always loved the idea that I could make or create something of value for someone and in return, they would pay me.
A native of the Chicago area since 1998, I attended the University of Illinois at Chicago. After receiving my Bachelor of Science in Economics, I then attended Loyola Graduate School of Business where I obtained my Master’s in Business Management in Accounting.
As a licensed CPA in the State of Illinois, I began my career in accounting working for Inland Real Estate Group, Inc., a national real estate firm in the US, serving both commercial and residential clients with a wide array of responsibilities.
Later I went on to work for Optima, Inc., one of the largest multi-family developers in the US, implementing processes and procedures where I provided effective and efficient operational solutions to financial processes.
After years of working for large firms and roles as Controller & CFO, I returned to my first love, entrepreneurship, and opened my own firm. Through these experiences, I developed a strong foundation of accounting principles and operational strategies which I have transitioned into my practice and clients.
My goal has been to bring my experience, knowledge and expertise to clients in a valuable way.
I’ve teamed up with some of the greatest minds in the legal, financial planning and accounitng field to bring my clients advanced tax strategies and planning. My clients benefit from time-tested, advanced strategies that most preparers have never heard of.
I am a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Illinois CPA Society. I also sits on the Board and is Treasurer of the Living With Power, a non-profit organization that provides social empowerment through biblical teaching primarily to families in Cook County, Illinois and abroad.
