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.

As a former principal at HLB Gross Collins, I am pleased to continue to be able to work with the firm’s professionals as the Chief Financial Officer of a long-time client of the firm. Serving a complex operation such as Mirasco’s is challenging, and Michael Bohling and Iliana Malinov meet that challenge by constantly thinking about our business and being in regular contact with me. Along with the managers, Adil Amou and Michelle Jenkins, they keep us current on reporting and tax developments. Our international scope requires advisors who are constantly thinking about all the implications of our transactions, and the HLB team does a great job bringing us ideas and responding to our questions.

“Crunching Numbers” for me is only one of the many things I appreciate about HLB Gross Collins. Over the many years of working with Pauline, who I consider my accountant and friend, I have developed a relationship which reflects trust and loyalty. I know she has my best interest as a basis for all her advice. Caring may be the key word. She is always available to guide my decisions in a supportive and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to be a client.
