South Florida is the best place in the world to live; as a native of the region, I know this first hand. In fact, my only extended absence from the area was a six month tour of duty to Iraq and Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Desert Shield with a local Army Reserve helicopter ambulance unit. That is why after graduating from Florida International University I chose to establish my professional career here.
I was fortunate to gain experience working with Coopers & Lybrand, LLP, (currently PricewaterhouseCoopers) one of the Big 4 public accounting firms, here in their Miami/Fort Lauderdale office. During my five year tenure with the firm I gained a wealth of experience in the areas of accounting, auditing, tax preparation, and business advisory services while serving clients in many different industries including banking, insurance, manufacturing, retail, real estate, hospitality, and the services sector. I regularly draw from this experience now as an Independent CPA.
International Business Acumen
During my time with Coopers & Lybrand, LLP I was regularly selected to travel to South and Central America to interface with clients due to the fact that I am both an English and Spanish speaking CPA. . While abroad, I provided tax, accounting, and auditing services to U.S. owned subsidiaries in the region. This experience provided me with a very keen understanding of the intricacies of handling taxation and accounting matters in the countries I visited and I have sought to retain and enhance this knowledge ever since.
As one of the few Hispanic and bilingual CPAs in Broward County, and given my broad insight into the complex tax laws faced by companies doing business in Latin America, I have established a niche serving Hispanic owned businesses and other businesses with financial concerns in those regions.
