La'Toya R. Ray, CPA
La’Toya is licensed by the state of Maryland and Virginia as a Certified Public Accountant. She obtained a B.S. in Accounting from Virginia Tech. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Taxation at the University of Baltimore. La’Toya fell in love with accounting from an intro-exploratory career class early in high school. Her thirst for knowledge in this field has never stopped. She has always been great in math since she can remember. So when she found out about accounting, it just made sense!
La’Toya is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants (MACPA) and American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS). She keeps up to date on the tax and accounting rules and regulations with continuing education, which is required to maintain her professional license.
Using her experiences, she helps small businesses grow and achieve their goals. She specializes in giving taxpayers a fresh start with her expert tax problem resolution strategies.
La’Toya spends her spare time with her husband, Damien, and their children. La’Toya has “Mommy/Daughter Night” every Wednesday with her daughter and it’s a great way to break up the work week. You can read about some of La’Toya’s family activities here.
