Pensacola United States
The aim of my business is to provide a level of service that goes beyond financial reporting. I offer a combination of accounting and software expertise, tax law and forensic accounting expertise and a personal understanding that comes from being part of the business community.
I have retired after 35 years with the government. Ten years of this time was with the Social Security Administration as a Claims Representative and the last 25 years with the IRS in forensic auditing as a Revenue Agent and Supervisory Revenue Agent. My experience gives me a wide range of Social Security law, tax law, and accounting and auditing knowledge and skills. I have a BBA in Finance and am an Enrolled Agent, licensed to practice before the IRS as well as a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents, National Association of Tax Professionals and a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Enrolled Agents are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who both specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. With these credentials, I can not only offer tax return preparation, but also assistance with IRS audit and collection issues.
I am also a Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor in all QuickBooks products, including Online, Point of Sale and Enterprise editions. In addition to QuickBooks services, I offer payroll services, budget planning, bill-paying, year-end tax preparation, financial statements, and full or partial accounting services. For those who don’t have a business, but just need a personal finance manager, I can offer trusted services, including bill-paying, insurance/Medicare claims, independent trustee and managing accounts.
I believe in giving back to the community and am actively involved in local organizations, including The Pensacola Women’s Alliance, Pensacola Symphony Orchestra Guild, Jazz Society of Pensacola, Escarosa Senior Alliance – local chapter of Professionals Helping Seniors, League of Women Voters as well as a member of Trinity Presbyterian Church.
