Karla Ortiz

Resolution Paralegal Managerundefined

After graduating from the University of Illinois with an accounting degree, Karla went directly into tax resolution work and truly found her calling.

Her favorite part of her role is the single moment when a client has a breakthrough in understanding their tax situation. From there, Karla knows she can help them gain control of the financial situation and move on to a better life.

That may sound mundane to some people, but for Karla that is a microcosm of watching her one real-life hero, her dad. He always put others before himself and works hard daily to make the future brighter for everyone he touches. Karla sees her tax work as a reflection of her father’s example.

Outside of work, Karla has two great loves: Traveling to places rich in history and Latin dance. She’s been a competitive dancer since her teens, performing with Dance2Xs any chance she gets.
