What’s the most rewarding thing about being an accountant?

Being a CPA is a never-ending road of learning. I still believe that my greatest professional achievement is ahead of me, but I know that continuous learning and improvement is how I’m going to get there.  In my role, I see first-hand how the business landscape that our clients live and operate in is changing. It allows me to put my skills to the test by coming up with the right advice at the right time to help them achieve their goals.

What’s different about Stern Cohen? 

We really care about people and building a strong culture. Whether it is with our own internal team members or with clients, we have a deep respect for each other. That spills off positively into the work we do.

What can a client expect when they’re working with the Stern Cohen team?

Dedication, helpfulness, understanding and insight. We get to know our clients’ needs and aspirations and we work hard to help them achieve their goals. I’m always willing to make our clients feel that they are in good hands and to let them know that their best interests will be maintained. We feel like a valued member of their team!
