Jeff was born and raised in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania the youngest of three children. The son of an engineer and school teacher Jeff has always held education as a high priority in life.
Jeff found that cold and snow were not to his liking so his college selection was the University of South Florida in Tampa on Florida's west coast. Jeff graduated in 1982 with a Bachelors Degree in Business with emphasis in both Accounting and Marketing.
After working in Public Accounting Jeff served as regional controller for a large real estate developer in St. Petersburg / Clearwater and then as controller for a large construction contractor in the same area.
Throughout those career stops Jeff developed skills in accounting and financial management. This development continued as Jeff was employed by GTE a multinational telecommunications company.
While living in Florida and working for GTE Jeff passed each part of the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination in November 1988.
A move to the Dallas / Fort Worth area in 1989 allowed Jeff to rise to ever increasing levels of responsibility with Verizon. During this time in Dallas Jeff graduated from the University of Dallas with a Masters Degree in Business with a concentration in Finance.
During his nineteen years with GTE and subsequently Verizon, Jeff rose to ever greater levels of responsibility in the areas of management, finance, accounting and compliance. He routinely interfaced with the Senior Executives of Verizon and was looked upon as a leader in solving complex problems as he routinely delivered results that led to revenue enhancing solutions. Upon leaving Verizon Jeff was an executive with the Enterprise Solutions Group regularly interacting with the President of that unit and the executive leadership team.
Throughout the time in Dallas / Fort Worth Jeff has maintained a practice in tax preparation and financial consulting. This practice has helped a small number of clients achieve financial success. Thus after considering an invitation to move to Verizon Corporate Headquarters in New Jersey, Jeff decided it was time to expand his CPA practice.
Jeff has been married to his wife Debbie for over 25 years and they enjoy their children Christopher and Diana.
