Renteria says both she and Prado can see the influence they’ve had on the next generation: members of their immediate families are accountants, and through the firm, they’ve established an endowment fund at UIC that provides scholarships to immigrant students pursuing an accounting degree. “When I look at the past 33 years, I see all the opportunities our firm has created for other accountants who came through our doors, gained experience, pursued the CPA, and then moved on to continue their professional journey,” she says. “It’s so fulfilling to see them succeed and to know they’ll continue to inspire others in their networks.”
