Dorothy David’s dream was not deferred. From an early age, Dorothy was intrigued with numbers and over 20 years ago, she decided to go into business as an accountant.
While many people would have been discouraged, Ms. David persevered. She worked harder to grow her dream business. She became a certified tax consult- ant and went to college for business administration. Continuing with her unwavering mission, Dorothy attained an MBA in accounting.
Dorothy M. David is the CEO of the enterprising D. M. D. Tax & Accounting Services. “When you start a business on your own, you don’t always know where to start. The tools and knowledge I got from my courses in business administration are phenomenal and exactly what I needed to get on track,” said Dorothy. She was among the first entrepreneurs to en- roll in the Community Business Academy —an intensive 12-week program that was launched by the Jersey City-based nonprofit organization, Rising Tide Capital.
Dorothy David now works with virtually 160 clients on an annual basis, which includes 8 established small businesses. More than 20 years after she decided to acquire her own business, Dorothy is living her dream.
In addition to her civic engagements, David is a member of the American Association of Notaries. She is licensed in six states as an insurance agent with New York Life insurance Company.
The LIA Board of Directors extends a hearty welcome to Dorothy M. David.
