Keep It Local with Mara
About our founder,
Born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Mara Gurevitz was a theatre major and then transitioned her way into the financial arena in 1976, where she has remained for the past 40 years. After spending several years in international banking, Mara moved into corporate operations specializing in financial accounting.
In 1990, now living in Florida, Mara opened her own accounting, bookkeeping & tax service which she has operated for the past 26 years, incorporating in 2006 as Edge Resources, Inc. Concurrently she served for 10 years as both GM and South East Marketing Director for two international film production payroll services advising her clients on payroll tax laws and union contracts as well as having complete responsibility for Florida operations. Until May of this year, Mara spent 4 years working for a temporary staffing agency, beginning as a part-time accountant and working her way up to Controller. She left to pursue her own business on a full-time basis.
Our client list includes CPA firms, tax preparation services, films and a wide variety of small businesses. Mara currently serves as President of the networking organization Keep It Local Oldsmar chapter. In her free time she sings in her church choir and is an avid tennis fan.
My Recent Work
Mara has filled in at Trademark and I was so pleased at her thoroughness as well as her committment even if the position was only a matter of months for coverage while one of our long time staff was handling a family emergency.
She brought good ideas to the table and was able to jump right in and help with little to no training.
She was well liked and respected at our company.
Mara is very astute to the intricacies of business tax returns. She has the ability to dig through paperwork, organized or not, ask questions and complete the project in a timely manner. All of our clients who have
had Mara as their tax preparer have been extremely satisfied with her work.
If you are looking for a project manager for anything important, I cannot recommend Mara highly enough. I hired her to do a large editing job for me on very important manuscript, and she came through with flying colors. Not only did she do the job in record time, but her work was outstanding. She demonstrated a very high work ethic, attention to detail, and a true dedication to her work. She is not only a superb editor and project manager, but also extremely personable and easy to work with. I would not hesitate to work with her again on any important project, and I urge you to consider her whenever you need one of her many business skills.Dan Sherman
