|Aliya Bass, Bookkeeper
Aliya is from a small town, about two hours away called Valdosta, GA. She has always had an interest in accounting, which probably came from her grandmother, who used to keep the books for her grandfather’s business.
Aliya has a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a focus in Finance and a Master’s in Business Administration, which she obtained from Valdosta State University. She moved to Jacksonville, FL to pursue more opportunities and she continues to sculpt her craft with our Temple team.
