Raven Simon is new to CMC’s The Perfect Small Office, Blue Ash! She is a CPA and has had a passion for numbers for as long as she can remember. She started doing her own taxes in high school which lead to doing taxes for friends and family. After doing work here and there, Raven took the leap and opened her own business where she can be more organized. She’s been an official CPA for four years and has been working as one full-time for a year and a half now.
Raven has earned her title after years of schooling. Attending Clemson University in South Carolina to earn her bachelor’s degree in accounting was just the beginning of her education journey. She then went on to earn her Master’s and take her CPA Exam. Raven eventually moved to Ohio to work for GE, where she has planted her roots and decided to open her own business as Raven S. Simon, CPA.
Just by spending a few moments with Raven, you can tell she’s so passionate about what she does. She loves people and she loves numbers, so being a CPA is perfect for her! Raven stated that “numbers tell a story” and her inner teacher wants to help her clients understand what the numbers mean.
Every business at some point will need an accountant and Raven sees quite a variety of people! Anyone from contractors and construction workers to hair stylists and restaurants to dentists and chiropractors. Some clients are only clients during tax season while the majority of her clients are monthly customers.
When it comes to the future, Raven has no plans of slowing down! She plans on working her way to the top until she has her very own skyscraper. She hopes to eventually expand where she can hire a receptionist, auditors, and interns that she can pass her knowledge along to.
While Raven is dedicated to her career and business, she loves to have fun! She enjoys reading and has become quite outdoorsy! Hiking and traveling the world are just a couple of her many interests! Her favorite place to visit being Barcelona!
