About Me

Mariette Martinez

HELLO, I AM MARIETTE!

 

I began my accounting career at a very young age. Being raised in a family-owned business that lasted over thirty years, I learned the importance of passionate entrepreneurship and its reliability on a strong infrastructure, great management and organized accounting system.  I was always fascinated by the numbers aspect of the business and how these numbers can be analyzed and utilized to forecast future success.  My first job out of high school was at an accounting firm. I worked at this firm throughout my college career until I graduated from California State University, Northridge in 2002 with a B.S. in Accountancy.

After graduation, I was recruited by a national CPA firm in Beverly Hills which specialized in high net worth individuals and small to mid-sized companies.  At this firm, I discovered my true passion for helping small business owners and as a result, I decided to specialize in accounting and taxation of small businesses and become in expert in QuickBooks.  Over 10 years later, I have stayed true to my passion and that is why in 2009, I opened my own  practice so I can continue to grow and share my knowledge with small business owners like myself. I want to Make A Difference for the Small Business!
