How it all began
Once upon a time in Miami, Florida, we (Amanda Waters and Roxanne Ortiz) were auditors at Goldstein Schechter Koch Accounting & Consulting firm (GSK). We developed a wealth of knowledge and skills under the tutelage of many high-level, well experienced accountants. Both of us worked extensively for numerous nonprofits during our tenure at GSK and developed expertise, gratification, and ultimately our niche. As time went by, we went on to become a CFO (Roxanne for a few local nonprofits) and a partner (at GSK Amanda). Fast forward a few years, and we both started our own accounting consulting firms—and continued to work together while managing our own companies. Over time, it became clear that two is better than one.
Merging two like-minded companies with partners with similar skills would be excellent for us and our clients. Ultimately, we formed Waters|Ortiz Accounting out of a fondness for serving nonprofit organizations and helping them achieve financial excellence. It is our mission to be your most trusted business partner by providing outstanding client service and expert professional advice.
We feel like we are finally home with the partnership we have formed, and we know our experience makes us a perfect fit to serve as your outsourced accounting team. Thank you for your interest in our story! We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey with us.
