Qulanda, better known as simply Q, is the coolest of all us international tax nerds at Schwartz International. An Atlanta, GA native, she is not only the firm’s office manager, but the head taskmaster, cat herder and ringleader, who has kept us all on our toes for over six years now. Along with managing the day-to-day operations of the firm, she has become an IRS Certified Acceptance Agent, a Certified Quickbooks User, a Georgia Notary Public, and is a continuous student of the global tax issues that our clients’ face daily.
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.
A producer and director of various indie film productions and web series, it’s no surprise that she is able to keep up with the unique cast of characters that make up the Schwartz International team. A little-known fact about Q is that she is a pool shark, having played in tournaments while in college. When not wrangling her co-workers, she enjoys spending time with her large family, which includes 14 nieces and nephews, and can be found letting loose by singing karaoke, which is as close as she gets to fulfilling her childhood dream of being a singer.
