Kristina Mahoney

Kristina Mahoney by day is affectionately known by her clients as The Tax Diva. She is responsible for the tax compliance and consulting function for a varied list of clients that include closely-held corporations, partnerships and high net-worth individuals. With more than 12 years of professional experience, she has consulted clients in varying industries including sports & entertainment, real estate, automotive dealerships and construction companies. She successfully manages companies with annual revenues in excess to $500 million. In her spare time she maintains a blog, www.TheTaxDiva.com that provides tax tips on a variety of hot tax topics throughout the year. Ms. Mahoney lends her time and talents during tax season by doing pro bono work through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA).

After a busy day at the office, Kristina transforms from The Tax Diva to A-list Socialite extraordinaire. Her social calendar is filled with invitations to some of the hottest events throughout Miami, Houston, and has most recently added the Washington, DC metro area where she currently resides. Marrying her love of marketing with her strong business acumen, she formed a boutique consulting firm, EliteOne Agency with her longtime friend Sandra Alphonse, to provide strategic business and marketing consultation to small and up and coming companies looking to take their business to the next level. In addition to providing tax consulting and business planning, the firm is focused on conceiving and developing strategic, high-impact, and effective initiatives specifically designed to take businesses to the next level. Clients include, Intra-Mail Network, Tequila Distinguido, Krome Vodka, Steve Rogers and Rob Wright Promotions Agency, Headliner Market Group, The Barber Lounge, just to name a few. Her firm also organizes annual charity golf events through The Fabulous Females of Golf®.

Kristina coordinated monthly Mix-n-Mingle events through the professional organization she founded, Elite Minglers. Elite Minglers was founded in November 2007 out of a need in the Houston market to get professionals networking on a different level. It provides a chance to socialize at various upscale venues in and around the Houston area. To date Elite Minglers currently has over 2,500 members on the mailing list and has now launched in South Florida.

Developing business plans or coordinating events for her clients make no mistake; Kristina is not a promoter, she is a purveyor of memorable events.
