Christine Dabu, CPA, MAcc
Christine Dabu moved to Northwest Indiana in 2017, and it didn’t take long for Laciak>cpa to recruit the talented young CPA to join the growing team at the firm’s Valparaiso location. As predicted, adding Christine to the roster was one of the best moves Laciak>cpa made during the tax “offseason.”
Previously, Christine worked for Chicago-based ORBA (Ostrow Reisin Berk & Abrams Ltd.), where she provided audit, tax, and accounting services for medium-size businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and high net worth individuals. In that role, Christine directly managed firm-client relationships, experience she tapped into immediately at Laciak>cpa.
“Laciak>cpa is a family-owned, family-friendly business,” Christine explains. “It’s been great to be a part of the team, and to see how our focus on family translates into service excellence for our clients. They know we truly care about them and the work we’re doing for them.”
Christine earned a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy from University of Illinois at Chicago before enrolling in graduate school at DePaul University, where she earned a Master of Accountancy with distinction. Christine obtained her CPA certification in December 2016. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Illinois CPA Society.
She, husband Guille, and their young daughter live in Valparaiso, where the couple enjoys exploring area restaurants and attractions, and taking their dog on walks around the neighborhood.
