Tonya started her accounting career in Honolulu, Hawaii after graduating from the University of Hawaii with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree. She soon started working for an attorney who was also an entrepreneur. He owned many rental properties around the U.S. and 3 elder care homes. While working for him, he built several new elder care facilities and purchased many more rental properties. She soon began to discover her enjoyment in accounting was helping businesses grow.
After several years in Hawaii, she moved to Austin, TX. In Austin, she started working for a tech firm. This company started out with 5 employees but over 4 years grew to 50 plus employees with offices in 3 different states. After several years, she decided to start her own business so she could have more flexibility to travel between Austin and Ohio to spend time with her family.
Tonya enjoyed the next decade working for herself as an accountant for small businesses. She specializes in every aspect of accounting from payroll to personal income taxes but her passion is helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses. She processes a strong work ethic and strong communication skills that help business owners understand how money flows through their businesses so they can make decisions based on true numbers.
