Florida’s divorce rate is higher than the national average, and my goal is to educate my clients about financial matters in terms that they can easily understand.”

Having been a CPA for more than 25 years, Ms. Ashley’s experience in this field enhances her experience as a CDFA. She is uniquely qualified to recognize the tax implications and consequences that go hand in hand with divorce proceedings.

Individuals who choose to retain the services of a CDFA can be assured that they are taking all possible steps to ensure a fair and equitable financial outcome as a result of a divorce situation.
