What first drew you to Berlin Ramos?
From the moment I walked in the door, I saw an excellent work environment with committed professionals. I’m happy to say that hasn’t changed at all.
What set you on the path to becoming Tax Manager?
Understanding tax laws and regulations is my passion. Applying that knowledge for the benefit of clients is what I love most about my job.
Can you share a story about a rewarding client experience that typifies your job?
Our circumstances change during various phases of our lives, and one job that comes to mind is helping a client during a major life change – a change in residency status. She needed help with liquidation of all her assets and transferring them overseas in a tax-efficient manner. Guiding her through the whole process made me aware of all the changes we face in our own personal lives. It was a pleasure to help her out and make such a big transition easier for her.
Do you feel your work has a positive impact beyond the office?
Since my work is mostly with taxes, I am always aware of the tax consequences. Providing the best tax advice to Berlin Ramos’ clients gives me great satisfaction, and that feeling translates to my personal life. I often help friends and members of my community with tax questions – 529 plans, estate and probate filings, account titles, and so forth. I like to share my experience with those who need it, and that has made for rewarding personal connections beyond the office.
