MEET OUR VICE PRESIDENT
Aisha Gaines has always had a passion for helping entrepreneurs and small business owners grow both ethically and financially. Her first entrepreneurial endeavor started when she was only 12 years old. Aisha’s grandfather was the treasurer of a prominent church and he offered her a job to balance the books. This included counting the money from offerings, tithes, donations, making deposits and manually recording.
Accuracy was everything to her even at this young age and making sure that the books were balanced was very important to her. Knowing that she was able to show her grandfather that she could do it was the best feeling in the world! He offered her a skill that she now inspires others with.
After much success in the corporate finance world, Aisha is currently the Chief Financial Officer at Upscale Tax Professionals. Her responsibilities include overall financial strategy, overseeing all aspects of the foundation’s finances, development and management of budgets, preparation of financial statements and payroll services. Assisting businesses with team building, tax planning, tax education and financial planning are also part of Aisha’s many skills. She has mastered the art of teaching companies the core fundamentals needed for wealth planning and business growth.
Using the many skills in her portfolio, Aisha has managed to network and connect business owners both locally and across the United States. She brings to the company nearly 10 years of financial management experience in the private and public sectors, with a focus on developing policies and procedures to improve performance and productivity.
Influenced by the positive figures in her immediate circle and business networks, Aisha has truly discovered her calling in leadership, development, and financial wealth/organization building. She will continue to use skills learned through years of hard work to grow, influence, and develop individuals and business owners to succeed in the financial world.
