Alexandra Barrera
Accountant Intern

How Long have you been with Perfect Balance Accounting?
I started working at PBA in February 2019 as an intern/tax assistant.  

What other types of jobs have you had?
Fun Fact: I used to work as a Pet Stylist. I have also worked as a Business Development Representative and Insurance Agent at Marz Insurance Agency.

I am currently pursuing a double undergraduate degree in Accounting and Business Management with a concentration in Human Resource at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

Pets? What Kind?
Since I live on campus, I am not able to have pets, but back home I have a bulldog named Willie Nelson, a husky named Nieves and a pitbull named Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Carribean!

What are some of your hobbies? 
I have a passion for soccer. I also enjoy playing volleyball, doing arts and crafts and pet sitting.

What town do you live in? I currently love in Kenosha, but have lived in Racine my whole life.
