“I can't say enough great things about Melissa. To start off I've known Melissa for about 15 years, we went to high school together she always wanted to be a CPA for as long as I can remember, and I always knew she'd own her own business one day. The special thing about her is that she cares. She has helped me numerous times with personal financial decisions and I'm so grateful for that. I can always rely on her to have mine & my family’s best interest in mind. Thanks for all your help!!!”
