Being a daughter of a banker, Ailyn always grew up in the accounting world. At a very young age, she remembers clearly how her father would compute compounded interest on a loan without using any calculator. She graduated with “Cum Laude” honors in 1996 with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from the University of San Carlos, one of the leading accounting schools in the Philippines. In high school and college, she was part of her school’s volleyball varsity team. In high school, she served as the Team Captain. She got her C.P.A. license in the Philippines in 1998. She migrated to the U.S.A. sometime in 2008, and got her C.P.A. license in the state of California in 2015.
When asked why she chose to specialize in taxes in her career as a CPA, Ailyn will always say that she loves to help other people. She loves to engage with other people in conversations, and see where she can help them. In her experience, she realized that she can always have the biggest impact by helping her clients, families, and friends when she helps them with plan and save on their taxes and being able to help them strategize their finances properly, especially the self-employed people.
During her free time, Ailyn enjoys going to the gym, trying new restaurants, and watching movies with her family. She also loves to study world history, and loves to travel to other countries, and watch history documentaries. Currently, Ailyn is studying to complete her Masters of Science in Taxation from Golden Gate University. She hopes to graduate early next year.
