Ellin & Tucker is always thrilled to announce the promotions of our youngest team members, knowing they are the future of the firm and the key to our lasting success. And today, we are proud to celebrate the advancement of four professionals: Ali Haas, Jack Mathias, and Jayla Prince to senior associates in the audit and accounting department, and Nhu Do to supervisor in the tax department.
First up, we have Ali Haas, a graduate of Towson University who joined the firm as an associate in the summer of 2021. Since then, her hard work and determination in such a short amount of time has earned her a well-deserved promotion to senior associate. In fact, in her new role, Ali will become a member of the firm’s mentoring program, which will give her the opportunity to share her experience and help guide the firm’s newest associates. “I was fortunate to have awesome mentors at Ellin & Tucker who helped me transition into working in the accounting field,” says Ali. “And now, in this new role, I am excited to pay it forward as a mentor to the next generation and help them succeed.”
Ali enjoys cooking, trying new restaurants, and spending time with her new puppy.
Jack Mathias, a Baltimore native and graduate of Loyola University of Maryland, began at Ellin & Tucker as a winter intern in 2020. After completing his internship experience, Jack found a strong connection to the audit and accounting industry, and joined the firm as a first-year associate after graduation. Jack says his favorite part about working at Ellin & Tucker is the people. “From the mentors who guided me every day and challenged me to be better, to my peers who have been my support system both in the office and outside the office, I believe the guidance and encouragement I’ve received here has helped me reach this next step in my career.”
In his spare time, Jack enjoys golfing, traveling with friends, and getting outside with his dog.
Jayla Prince also started at Ellin & Tucker as an intern, participating in six different firm internship experiences from the summer of 2017 to the spring of 2020. Upon graduation from Towson University in 2020, she joined the team as an associate in the firm’s audit and accounting group. Jayla has come a long way from her days as an intern and with this promotion, she is excited to further her accounting career. “I am thankful for every opportunity that Ellin & Tucker has given me over the years. All of these experiences have helped me grow. I look forward to new opportunities as a senior associate, including reviewing the work of others, and being a part of the sales process.”
Jayla enjoys traveling and coaching Towson University cheer.
Nhu Do is also a graduate of Towson University. In fact, she was a recipient of the University’s Ellin & Tucker Scholarship during her junior year. She then participated in the firm’s internship program in the winter of 2018. After completing the program, Nhu found herself drawn to the tax industry and joined the tax department as a first-year associate after graduation. In her new role as a supervisor, an increase in client engagement is what Nhu is most looking forward to, saying “I have been lucky enough to consistently work with some of the same clients over the past few years at Ellin & Tucker. I have loved getting to know them and helping their business or organization. As a tax supervisor, I look forward to even more interactions and building stronger relationships with each client along the way.”
Nhu Do enjoys traveling and trying new restaurants in the area.
Congrats to Ali, Jack, Jayla, and Nhu! We look forward to watching you continue to shine in your new roles.
