We always knew she was smart...

And now she has another certificate to prove it. Rollins & Associates’ very own Danielle Van Lear is now, officially, a CPA; she passed all four parts of the exam with flying colors on her first attempt - less than 20% of first time test-takers can say the same!! Rollins & Associates is our sister CPA firm, which has been operating in Atlanta since 1981.

Danielle received her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina (sorry Duke fans) in 1996 while majoring in Mathematics and Secondary Education. After graduating, she taught math in both middle school and high school for over 5 years before deciding it was time for a career change. Not abandoning the classroom completely, she soon found herself adjusting to the role of student as opposed to teacher. And in 2003, she received her MBA from Georgia State University with a concentration in finance.

Luckily for us, she graciously accepted a position with Rollins & Associates in February of 2004. Throughout the years she has completed countless hours of Continuous Professional Education courses as well as over 30 hours of accounting classes, while still working full-time for Rollins & Associates. Needless to say, all of her hard work has paid off and she continues to amaze us all with both her knowledge and determination.

So kudos to Danielle, and if you haven’t had the privilege of working with her, know that when you do you’re in excellent hands!
