Hello, I am Laura.

After my experience serving diverse industries in both big 4 accounting, national and local levels, I created Athena CPAs with a vision to establish an accounting firm to help entrepreneurs succeed by scaling their company. With my years of practice, I have incorporated the best practices I have learned to create a more efficient, effective business model. My dream is to build an innovative organization that uses the latest technology to build a vivid, collaborative relationship with my clients while providing value, excellence, and financial empowerment.


Athena CPAs provides clients with outstanding service and a customized customer experience. I have had the pleasure to work closely with clients in various industries, including health coaching, attorneys, shop owners, and many others. I am especially passionate about working with women entrepreneurs by providing guidance and tools for them to achieve their goals.


I am a University of South Florida alumnus, where I earned both my bachelor’s in accounting and finance and a Master's in accounting. In 2015, I attained my CPA in Florida. I have been happily married for more than 6 years to my amazing husband, Sebastian, and we have two wonderful, energetic dog pups. In addition, I am a fan of weight training, bodybuilding, cooking, and reading.

Signs that you might need a CPA by your side!

Teaming up with an experienced CPA firm allows you to stop stressing about compliance requirements, and instead do what you do best, grow your organization!

Many of our clients say, "I only wish I had hired you earlier". In light of this, we asked them: 'What are the common symptoms of CPA?'' Here's what they said:

  • Looking at your company financials makes you feel disengaged
  • Taxes and cash flow don't receive the attention they deserve because you are so busy working.
  • You want to focus more on growing your business.
  • You value the proactive approach to tax planning
