Meet the team

We experienced how brutal it is to study for the CPA exam. That is why we are dedicating our lives to helping students pass the CPA exam and move forward with their careers!

Let’s Build a Mental Map

Yeah, sure, we are CPA’s… but beyond that we are storytellers, we are innovators, we are problem solvers, we are visionaries and we are appreciators of a damn good joke.

Did you know: 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual?

Did you know: The retina processes visuals 60,000x faster than text? 

Did you know: Universal CPA Review is changing the entire landscape of CPA test prep as you know it???

You’re probably wondering why a couple millennials would quit their accounting jobs and spend their life creating Universal CPA Review, right? Well, after we both passed the CPA exam, the question we kept asking ourselves was – “Why isn’t there a review course that has study materials that align with how students truly learn this stuff?” That’s why we introduced visual learning to the CPA exam!

Traditionally, no, accounting concepts are not typically known as the most riveting topics out there. However, that doesn’t mean that you should feel compelled to scream into a pillow while learning it! That’s why Universal CPA Review not only prides itself on delivering extremely intuitive explanations that align with how today’s candidates learn, but we’re also going to have a little bit of fun along the way.

Let’s face it, it won’t be easy for dinosaurs named Allen or Gene to give you that “Aha!” moment, or that “Oh, now I see it…” moment, or even the “Hey, this is kind of fun…” moment. That’s where we come in. No more static, outdated materials.  When it comes to finding the correct formula to pass the CPA exam, Universal CPA Review is here to offer you everything and more. At this point, you know where you’re going. We are  just here to help get you there.
