About Me

Hello, I'm Assunta!

My approach is different.

I listen to your business story and we work together to find the right solution for you. This provides additional value than what people may expect from their accountant.

My Approach: I take the time not only to be your accountant but also mentor, coach, and strategic advisor to guide you to business financial success.

Complex tax matters become simple because I break them down in plain English, so you understand them, which then empowers you and gives you confidence in making better business financial decisions. Furthermore, my clients have access to me throughout the year to deal with surprises and to bring certainty to the unexpected!

I love helping small businesses grow!

Having the opportunity to explore a different higher learning and gain life experiences, I eventually realized that I was missing my numbers. So, I did a 360-degree turn back to accounting and obtained my Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. Not the most direct path, but it helped me confirm that this was meant to be my career.
