Mia’s focus is on the audit and accounting area of the practice, with extensive experience serving the small and middle market, closely held businesses and their owners.
Mia has been in public accounting since 1997, and has acquired in-depth experience managing the audits, reviews and compilations of companies in various industries, including construction, manufacturing, wholesale distribution, technology and retail and professional services. She has also assisted clients with year-end closing procedures, internal controls analysis and recommendations, financial analysis and tax planning and projections.
“Accountants are problem solvers, that’s what attracted me to the profession” says Mia. “I enjoy getting to know our clients and their businesses, and providing them with the best strategies to address their tax and financial issues. At the end of the day, it’s about helping people.”
