As a CPA for over a decade now, Owner Melissa Barbosa knows her numbers.

After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Central Florida in 2001 and launching her career helping provide forensic accounting and litigation support services, she went on to earn her Master’s in Business Administration from Florida Southern College in Lakeland. She made her foray into public accounting in 2007 and became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) the very next year.

Melissa is also skilled at business valuations and holds her Accreditation in Business Valuation (ABV).  She has prepared numerous valuations for marital dissolution matters, shareholder disputes, and estate planning purposes. What’s more, she’s a respected member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as well as the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA).

Melissa has called Central Florida home for the last 20 years and after a careful search of practices that met her values, chose to acquire CPA Orlando in 2017. Melissa and her team are looking forward to helping your business lead and succeed by taking on your accounting and tax burdens. She knows her numbers, so call hers and stop worrying about yours.
