Hello! I’m Matthew Loera, a dedicated and detail-oriented accounting professional with a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy, graduated with honors from California State University, Northridge. My academic foundation, including a 3.59 GPA and recognition on the Dean’s List, supports my practical experience in accounting. I recently served as a Staff Accountant with the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. In this role, I reconciled general ledger accounts, audited credit card and travel reports, processed and paid vendor invoices, managed vendor relations, and trained staff on accounting software. Additionally, as a self-employed Bookkeeper since June 2017, I handle business expenses, create financial reports, and reconcile bank accounts. Earlier, I gained valuable customer service experience in retail management, where I audited cash registers, managed inventory, and oversaw vendor invoices. I possess advanced knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe PDF, Abila MIP Fund Accounting, Microix Workflow Modules, and Sage 300 for Construction and Real Estate. My strong analytical skills, independence, and effective communication abilities allow me to manage and analyze financial data accurately and convey insights clearly. I am passionate about leveraging my skills to improve financial operations and support organizational success. Thank you for learning about my professional journey.
