Aerica Love

Aerica Love


Aerica is a foodie at heart. She even lists it as one of her favorite hobbies. However, she is very mindful about balance so she continues to run on the lakefront or loves to take a walk with her two dogs.
Aerica has a CPA license and has been in the accounting industry for over 20 years. The right hand to many, she has worked on everything from software implementations, financial statement preparation, account reconciliations, month end close, 1095-C/1094-C filings for ACA to working with 401k, IRS, workers compensation, bank and year auditors.
Aerica loves to develop and train others. Her mother instilled in her and her sister the importance of education and learning. This helped to cultivate a belief that you can learn or gain something from every experience that she has embraced throughout her career and passes on to others including the clients she works with.
