AMANDA RUSSELL MSA MBA EA
Through earning a Masters in Professional Accounting, an MBA and working at two of the "big 4" public accounting firms, PriceWaterHourseCoopers and KPMG, Amanda gained a high-level business accounting & tax expertise.
Eventually, after 80 hour weeks, she had a burn out and decided it was imperative to find more fulfilling work, where she felt like she was having a positive impact in the world. She began working with small businesses, companies that service small businesses (like Intuit) and teaching accounting & tax courses at colleges, universities and for business organizations.
She was disturbed by the way that small business owners were underserved by the professional services (accounting, taxes and law). Through education and the internet, she saw an opportunity to use what she had learned to serve smaller businesses.
