Dive in and learn more about Maria and her life outside of Tax Accounting.
Maria is a Senior Accountant on the Tax team. Some key responsibilities and duties of hers include:
A store associate at Tilly’s.
When she isn't crushing looming tax deadlines, Maria can most likely be found doing something outdoors, whether it's playing rugby, football, softball, snowboarding, hiking or going on runs with her beloved dog, Lola. She also enjoys some indoor activities like making her own beer, cooking ,and reading.
As mentioned earlier, Maria was a foundational member of the Tax team. She is proud of where it has progressed since joining Accountfully in 2022.
"I started Accountfully in a solid tax team of two. We have since tripled in size with some amazing effort and teamwork to show for it."
My dad. I don't think I've ever heard this man complain. He works day in and out, and has the most positive attitude
"I would say I love working with everyone at Accountfully, despite working remotely and having different roles, we have awesome communication."
I don’t think I could have asked for better teammates on the Tax team. Having the ability to work from home is also great. I knew Accountfully was a company that I wanted to work for and Tax was a skill I wanted to specialize in, so it’s really been the best overall fit for me.
My fiancé, Damon! He might say I'm funnier though.
