Welcome to Civic Parent, my blog devoted to increasing financial literacy around issues of community import in Jersey City and New Jersey. I research, analyze, and write about property taxes, tax abatements, municipal budgets, and public schools budgets. I’m a certified public accountant and hold an MBA in accounting. I worked for 10 years in public accounting implementing tax/technology projects for Fortune 50 clients. In addition to Civic Parent, I now serve on several non-profit boards in the Jersey City area and work for private clients in the tax/technology space.
