I’m on a mission to change the face of the accounting industry. That’s why after many years of being a CPA at a traditional accounting firm, I decided to create my own. As the co-founder of Prisma Tax Group, I’m building a destination for clients and employees alike, correcting all the things I hate about public accounting (and all the things you hate about it too). Through a culture of collaboration, innovation, and empowerment, we offer fresh perspectives and cutting-edge strategies to help you succeed. When I’m not working, I find joy in spending quality time with my family, exploring new destinations, cooking up delicious meals, and playing guitar. Let’s connect and take control of your financial future.

I'm Katherine, a tax accountant and a fellow content creator. I'm originally from Buffalo, NY, and I graduated from Niagara University with a Bachelor's in Accounting. I was working in CPA firms right after college, but it just didn't feel right for me. I decided to hit the reset button on my career and moved to Washington D.C. to work as a business manager at a government contracting firm. But when the pandemic hit I understood new business opportunities were emerging, so I started social media marketing for local businesses. It was in mid 2020 I came across OnlyFans. I immediately saw the potential for content creators to shape their own uncommon, independent career paths just as I have. And because of my tax experience, I knew creators would be earning money as independent contractors instead of W-2 employees and may not feel comfortable seeking help in a traditional CPA firm. I quit my full time job on the spot to start The Only Consultant. Over the last two years, I've helped hundreds of clients safely navigate the tax process as new entrepreneurs. I formed my own tax firm, Prisma Tax Group, to offer tax preparation, bookkeeping, business formation, and all things related to support small businesses. I love helping new businesses thrive. If you're on your own unique career path, I'm here to support you. Let's talk today.
