As Murphy & Company continues to grow, Marcela is the newest member of the team joining as the Director of Tax and Accounting.  Her diverse career experience ranges from Big 4 public accounting to publishing a children’s book and opening and managing her own business.  In public accounting, Marcela worked closely with clients to provide innovative tax planning, consulting, compliance and audit services for start-up businesses through Fortune 500 companies.  In running her own company, Marcela learned firsthand the challenges of business structuring, the product life cycle and intellectual property protection, to name a few.  As a result, she has developed a robust skill set in not only tax and audit matters, but business advisory and overall accounting.  Having come from a family of hard-working entrepreneurs, she is passionate about the community and small businesses and helping everyone achieve their short and long-term goals.

Marcela has both a BS in Accounting and MBA from Fordham University.  She is a member of the AICPA and Milford Chamber of Commerce.  Marcela lives in Milford with her fiancé and their newly rescued pup.  In between work and home life, she also loves spending time at schools instilling the values taught in her children’s book.
