Belicia Cespedes CPA

Forensic Staff, PwC

Belicia Cespedes is the second of five girls in a wonderful family who loves God, plays a lot of tennis, supports each other, isn’t afraid to dream big, and has a very unique story. Belicia and her sisters have all been privileged to accelerate their education, and graduate with their bachelor’s degrees all before they were able to legally vote. Through home schooling, credit by examination tests, online classes, an amazing academic counselor (their mom), dedication, and hard work, Belicia was also able to earn her CPA license at 17 years of age.

Belicia has recently graduated from the Master’s degree program in Accountancy at CSUN, and is now working as the corporate accountant for her family buinsess, International Environmental Corporation, and will be starting full time in forensic accounting at PwC in January.

She is passionate about helping people and seeing them reach and realize their potentials. Belicia is especially excited to help and contribute to young people; specifically the new generation of CPAs that she is proud to be a part of. She believes that attracting, preparing, and challenging these young accountants is often overlooked, but is the key to further advancing the accounting profession and its effect on people’s lives.
