Tina was born and raised in South Georgia. After working in the banking industry for several years she decided to go to college to prepare for a career change. She started taking classes on a part-time basis while she continued to work full-time at the bank. Eventually Tina was able to attend classes full-time while working part-time at the bank, as well as holding a part-time position in the tutoring lab at her community college.
In 2002, Tina was accepted into the University of Georgia and she and her family relocated to Athens, GA. After graduating in 2004 with a BBA in Accounting, she received an offer from a CPA firm in Atlanta. During her four years at the CPA firm she gained experience and exposure to all facets of public accounting. Tina initially prepared Individual and Fiduciary tax returns and then advanced to calculate Business tax returns.
After two years she earned a promotion and became the firm’s Financial Administrator. In this position she gained invaluable experience in the internal accounting functions of the firm. She and the team she managed were responsible for all of the financial statements and summaries required for the internal accounting and human resource functions. In addition, Tina prepared the corporate federal and state tax returns for the firm, as well as for two other partnerships associated with her employer.
Tina left public accounting to further her career and experience in private industry where she joined an IT company that specialized in VOIP, security, and data collaboration networks. Here she expanded her knowledge and understanding of the inner workings of a small company as she took on the increased financial management responsibilities of building and developing an Accounting Department. Tina created and implemented several efficiencies within her department together with expediting reconciliations and analyses of accounts.
With nine years of progressive accounting responsibilities and experience in corporate and private accounting, Tina is very excited to be part of the Tazergy family and help to take it to the next level in business practices by providing relative financial data on services provided.
Tina currently lives in Cumming, GA with her family.
