Meet Kenya

Principal

There is a relatively small segment of leaders in the business world; individuals who possess the ability to build relationships, establish trust and rapport with anyone, and then are able to broker the relationships and make connections between people. These leaders can create partnerships and alliances, and motivate forward momentum in order to ‘get things done.’

Kenya M. Sykes is one of those people, and ‘getting things done’ and driving results for clients – through collaboration, partnerships and relationships – as a business tax advisor, is what she is all about.  With an enthusiastic and genuinely friendly attitude, Kenya radiates a sincere passion for delivering value and benefits to her clients.

Kenya has 25 years of experience working with individuals, trusts and estates, and closely-held businesses in the areas of taxation and accounting.  A Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Kenya earned her B.S. in Accounting at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) in 1995, and spent years honing her craft in auditing and accounting as an alumnus of the former Arthur Andersen LLP.  After returning to school and earning her M.S. in Financial Services from Saint Joseph’s University (SJU) and her M.T. in Taxation from Villanova University School of Law, Kenya expanded beyond accounting to serve as the premiere tax advisor to small business clients in over 20 industries.

Kenya is an avid football enthusiast (let's say "glorified football junkie") who still roots for her beloved hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  In the rare moments when she is not watching football, she is leading the New York Women's Athletic League (NYWAL), the exclusive women-only, multiple sports league in New York City or enjoying her other favorite past time, going to the movies.  Kenya is a lifetime member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She and her life partner, Crystal, will celebrate their tenth anniversary in 2014.
