Liliya Sabaleuskaya – Tax Accountant

Liliya Sabaleuskaya
Tax Accountant

I was born and raised in Belarus. I came to the U.S. in 2003 as a student and decided to stay after I met my husband. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with the Bachelor of Science in Finance and moved to Charlotte for better opportunities.
After working for several years for a large investment company, I decided that I needed a change in my career and in my life, so I left the corporate world and went back to school to get a graduate degree. After graduating with a master’s degree in accounting,
I put my skills to the test in my husband’s business. I really enjoyed working in a small business environment and I was very interested in doing taxes, so when James offered me an opportunity, I did not hesitate to take it. In my spare time, I like hiking,
travelling, dancing the Argentine tango, reading and spending time with family and friends.
