Christina Ives started her career in a small firm environment, then pursued a career at Ernst & Young. While at Ernst & Young, she specialized in corporate tax and training of the staff. Having a newborn, she found herself with an opportunity to exit public accounting ‐ she went on to be the Assistant Tax Director of Tax at Waffle House. After the birth of her second child, she went back to public accounting for another 8 years (realizing she missed it). Finding a fantastic opportunity as part of PwC flexible talent network, she seized the day. While at PwC she worked on corporate tax, training, provisions, and partnership returns. Finding an opening to work from home, she took a leap of faith to come work for Shilts CPA remotely. Fast forward, she is now our Principal.
Christina graduated from University of South Florida with her Bachelor's degree in Accounting. She later went on to get her Enrolled Agent. Christina is married, with four children. In her down-time she enjoys her family. Her hobbies include traveling, fishing, and reading.
