Helferty's father, Rowan J. Helferty, Jr., opened his downtown Dunedin law office when she was just three years old. In this spot today is Dunedin's landmark restaurant, the Black Pearl.
Helferty's new office is located at 2715 Cypress Drive, Clearwater, 33763. The firm will celebrate its move this Friday, July 23rd, with an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Greater Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce, in which Helferty is a member.
"It has been my life-long dream to own a business in the area, and this year, that dream came true," said Helferty. "We were fortunate to find the perfect space for our new office in the Countryside area, which is central to Palm Harbor, Dunedin and Clearwater. This new location will help us continue to grow and develop so we're able to keep pace with the needs of our clients."
The open house is open to the public and will take place at the new offices of Kristina Helferty, CPA: 2715 Cypress Drive, Clearwater, Florida. RSVP here.
