A lifelong resident of Okeechobee, Florida, Dina has been working in the accounting field for over 15 years. Starting her career with Okeechobee County School Board, she was an ESOL Teacher's Aide and an Administrative Secretary, with duties including payroll, data processing, scheduling and grade reporting.
In 1997, she was hired on as Office Manager and Human Resources Manager at Pritchard's & Associates, Inc. This allowed her to have vast knowledge of the insurance world, specializing in the development and implementation of operational workflows, agency management, and customer service.
After eight years in the insurance world, Dina began working for a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in October of 2005. During her tenure, she managed payroll for 65 clients, consisting of weekly paychecks, income verifications, workers compensation audits, and quarterly and annual tax reports. Additionally, she maintained bookkeeping for 15 clients. She also set up new corporations and limited liability companies-including filing and registering with the State of Florida, filing workers compensation exemptions, billing, deposits and helping them obtain insurance. This allowed Dina to gain a variety of experiences with small/large businesses and personal clients, alike.
Then in 2009, Dina left the CPA office and became self-employed, establishing Elite Office Services of Okeechobee, LLC. Now as the owner and operator, she continues to provide accounting and bookkeeping services to clients, in addition to payroll, sales tax, creating and implementing budgets, tax returns and notary services. Her love and passion continues to show and motivates her to help clients make the most out their financial situation and relieve the stress and burden of maintaining a business.
