Q graduated from Georgia State University, earning a degree in Film/Video Production and Spanish.

While a student at Georgia State, she participated in a study abroad summer program, living with a host family in Guadalajara, Mexico and attended the Centro de Estudios para Extranjeros – Universidad de Guadalajara. She has a working knowledge of Spanish and an interest in learning Japanese. Upon graduating, she had no idea that this adventurous peek into global travel would soon lead to her predestined future in the world of international tax advisory and compliance.

As Director of Business Operations, Q works diligently to ensure that the company’s internal goals and objectives are consistently met.

With nearly 15 years of executive administrative experience and exceptional organizational and management skills, Q provides the other International Tax Nerds and our clients with the tools they need to maintain a seamless workflow. Assisting the team in streamlining our clients from engagement to project completion, Q strives to ensure that the quality and essence of our services meet and exceed client expectations.

A former producer and director of various indie film, web, and theatrical productions, it’s no surprise that she is able to keep up with the unique cast of characters that make up the International Tax Nerds. Q has always preferred working behind the scenes, whether it’s on an independent movie set or within the world of an international tax firm. When not wrangling her co-workers, she enjoys spending time with her large family, which includes 5 siblings, 14 nieces & nephews and her French Bulldog/fur baby, Chloe Josephine-Baker Smith.
