Patricia O’Connor, CPA, MBA
Tricia has a BSBA from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and a Masters Degree from Regis University. She has been a certified public accountant since 1982 and has amassed 30 years of experience in public accounting, internal and external auditing, competitive analysis and business planning and tax preparation. After working for Ernst & Young and KPMG Peat Marwick, she was hired by AMR Corp, parent company to American Airlines. Her experience and expertise were built in a variety of management level positions during her 10 years with American as a result of a fast track management development program where she changed positions every 6 to 18 months. Her last position with American was as CFO of a $70 million subsidiary, AMR Combs, with 10 locations around the country and headquarters in Denver.
The variety of positions held and the experience gained through her 10 years with AMR Corp make Tricia much more well-versed than the run-of-the-mill CPA with no experience other than Public Accounting. She has gained the kind of experience that can only come from having held many different positions, having reported to the highest levels of Management and having dealt with the many issues which today’s small business owners are confronting; employees, budgets, deadlines, profitability, cash flow.
Tricia specializes in General Business Consultation for businesses needing to focus on profitability, the management of staff and the development of effective and efficient policies and procedures. Her approach is to first assist each client in identifying a clear vision of their goals and then designing a strategy that stays true to their goals while prioritizing the issues that need to be addressed in order to affect dynamic and progressive change.
Having been a QuickBooks ProAdvisor for more than 15 years, she is qualified to assist clients on designing and implementing an accounting system unique to each client’s specific needs. We provide all levels of bookkeeping services and assistance, customized to your unique requirements.
Tricia was the recipient of several awards over the last several years. She has been named as one of Denver’s "Five Star Wealth Managers” for 2010, 2011 and 2012, specifically for tax preparation services. She was also awarded the "Denver Award” for Tax and Accounting Services for 2009, 2010 and 2011. These awards are a testament to the care and attention she believes every client should receive and how important the total financial health of her clients is considered to be.
"Every client is important, every client is unique, every client has a different set of accounting, bookkeeping and/or tax issues that they need addressed. Our job is to identify those issues that are most critical to every client’s success and to develop a relationship and a process that will meet their specific requirements in a way that allows them to be as successful, profitable and financial healthy as possible.”
