I believe financial literacy is for all walks of life, regardless of your economic status and background. The main cause of financial distress is lack of proper training and education. This is why I am passionate and excited about educating others to empower and to change their lives. I want to create awareness so people can take the right path in their financial decisions.
Beza offers deep insight and knowledge of the complex and ever-changing tax code. She is committed to implementing optimal tax solutions that will bring about the most favorable results for her clients' financial health. She works with many businesses and high net worth individuals in implementing effective tax strategies, understanding that each client's situation is unique and there is no "one size fits all" solution. Her knowledge of the multiple facets of the tax code allows her to identify customized solutions for each client she serves.
