Before joining Supporting Strategies in 2018, Nilsa spent 11 years as an Accountant for a series of successful, fast-paced companies, during which she made the transition to working remotely from her home office.
As a Senior Staff Accountant for General Atlantic, a $20 billion private equity investment firm, Nilsa provided a broad spectrum of services. These included performing research that corrected discrepancies in general ledger transactions, reviewing capital accounts for uninvested cash to be refunded and completing yearly tax packages for auditors (including flux analysis for the balance sheet and P&L).
Nilsa began her career as a Staff Accountant for BAE Systems, helping the company recover $40,000 by researching duplicate A/P payments to a large vendor.
Nilsa holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting (minor in Finance) from Jacksonville University, where she graduated with honors.
