I am a certified public accountant in New York State and have been in public accounting since 1997.  In October, 2018 I started my own CPA practice.  During my over 20 years of experience, I have serviced the nonprofit, real estate, cooperative and condominium, wholesale and construction industries in all facets of accounting services, such as accounting services, tax preparation and financial statement preparation, including audits reviews and compilations.

My primary reason for starting my own practice is that I wanted to provide services to clients that is professional and, most importantly, personal.  Sometimes, clients of either medium to large sized accounting firms can become "lost in the shuffle" and have not received the personalized service and attention that they deserve.  I am setting out to change that approach.
