Sean and Maureen were married in 1991 in Baltimore, MD where they both were born and raised. Twelve years and three kids later, Amanda, Brendan & Caitlin, they decided to make the move to sunny Florida. With the move came the opportunity for Sean to own his own firm. Maureen started working there just a few days a week, and once the kids got older was able to transition to full time. You will find her answering the phone, filing, greeting the clients, and handling some client bookkeeping and payroll. She credits the ease of working with her husband to the fact they handle different aspects of the business. Sean is the tax man and Maureen makes sure everything else is running smoothly.
