Family CFO | Tax Planner & Accountant | Strategic Business Advisor
As a Certified Financial Planner and an IRS Enrolled Agent, I understand that finding a real 'trusted advisor' is not common in the world of entrepreneurs.
As a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business and Heinz School of Public Policy and Management, I have built a solid foundation not only in the private sector but also in the public sector as well.
Personally, I myself have started, invested, failed, and succeeded in different businesses. I understand the challenges entrepreneurs face and know strategies that can help entrepreneurs save on taxes, protect their assets, plan for retirement, and ultimately, succeed.
