Journey To Law
In seventh grade, Sasha heard a Certified Public Accountant say, “Accounting is the language of business.” At that moment, she was inspired to become a licensed CPA.
Sasha obtained her CPA license and Master of Auditing at the Fisher School of Accounting in Gainesville, Florida. She traveled to Adelaide, Australia to observe the practice of law and accounting, experience Australian culture and exchange ideas as a team member of the Rotary International Group Study Exchange. She excelled at analyzing financial statements and other data to predict the likelihood of financial success for both individuals and businesses.
Knowing how taxes shape business decisions and investment strategies, Sasha set her sights on the UF Levin College of Law and NYU School of Law, where she armed herself with the specialized knowledge required to minimize the tax burden of her clients.
