Congratulations Helen Burgess, Ambassador of the Quarter!

helen-burgessHelen is the co-owner and co-founder of The Advantage Group, a tax and accounting firm dedicated to small business.

Although Helen now loves her accounting practice, she got her start as an attorney. While working days as a paralegal in Boston, Helen graduated from Suffolk University Law School’s evening division. She worked in a number of real estate positions and eventually went out on her own, being a solopreneur, concentrating in real estate closings. When the market began its downturn in New England, Helen decided it was a great opportunity to relocate to a warmer climate. Last August, after a stop in South Carolina where she met her business partner, CPA David Snyder, Helen moved to Sarasota. She and David fearlessly started The Advantage Group and have enjoyed the challenges associated with a new business. When Helen is not working for her clients or performing her Chamber Ambassador’s duties, she likes to play competitive pickleball.

Congratulations, Helen! We greatly appreciate the dedication that you give to The Chamber and to the Ambassadors. Her hard work to the Chamber Ambassadors, welcoming and on-boarding of new members makes her a great representative of The Chamber. Thank you Helen & keep up the great work!
