Dark Horse CPAs has announced the appointment of Stella Sanchez as an accelerator in the firm’s principal accelerator program.
Sanchez brings with her expertise in the areas of international tax and state tax controversy as well as overall experience with small businesses in the areas of tax and bookkeeping.
She earned a degree in accounting from Angelo State University in 2011, a master’s in accounting from Missouri State University in 2017 and earned her CPA license in 2018.
Starting her career with one of the Big four, she provided accounting and tax support to a wide range of businesses, with an emphasis in the areas of international tax and state tax controversy.
She said: “I find my job most rewarding when I help a client achieve a great outcome and can celebrate with them. When you work for larger firms, you end up working with large clients in narrowly focused ways and you just don’t get that sense of satisfaction of making life better for an actual person.
“I joined Dark Horse because I saw their client-centric approach, made possible by the support and resources they provide their CPAs to achieve the sorts of outcomes that I’m always striving for with my own clients.”
Chase Birky, CEO and co-founder of Dark Horse CPAs, added: “Stella is a student of the game. She’s never content with the most common answer or approach; she really digs deep to find the best answer and solution for her clients.
“Someone who knows a lot yet knows there is always a lot more to learn and will leave no stone unturned in the quest for the best answer is indispensable for clients.”
