Isabelle V. Curtiss, CPA/PFS

Isabelle V. Curtiss, P.C., CPA

Isabelle is the owner of Isabelle V. Curtiss, P.C., CPA. As both a CPA and a Personal Financial Specialist (PFS), she has amassed a long list of accolades throughout her career. A former CTCPA Board member, she served as a member of or liaison to many committees and was founder of the CTCPA Personal Financial Planning Committee. 

What inspired you to pursue the CPA career path?  

When I chose the CPA career path, I wanted to assist clients beyond tax and accounting. Working as a professional with credentials, I felt I could assist in a meaningful way with a combination of cash flow, budgeting, tax, investments, retirement, estate, and trust advice. I provide a complete service on behalf of clients.  

What professional accomplishment are you most proud of? 

When I was on the CTCPA Board, I advised that the organization consider adding Personal Financial Planning (PFP) as a technical committee. This was achieved, along with the PFP Conference. I received the CTCPA Annual Service Award for my work. On the AICPA PFP Board I chaired the PFP Exam. For my work with the AICPA, I also received the Distinguished Service Award. I was the first woman to receive this award.  

What is your next major goal?  

I plan to continue my all-encompassing planning on behalf of clients. I will continue to give to my community and my world for all of the blessings I have realized during my career as a CPA/PFS.  

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work? 

To play my Steinway piano. I love music. To garden.  I manicure 18 gardens on my home’s three acres of land. I am an avid sports fan and have a game room to feel my love for the Yankees, Patriots, and tennis.
