Aaron Mayer earned a BA in music from Duke University in 2002; but being at his core a numbers person, he soon found himself working as an accounting and tax consultant for small businesses in South Carolina. He transitioned to a real estate consulting firm in North Carolina and continued with accounting and tax, so after more than 15 years in accounting roles, he decided to pursue an advanced degree in his adopted field. Having first completed the Certificate in Accounting Fundamentals at the University of Connecticut, Aaron enrolled in the school’s online Master of Science in Accounting program and received an MSA scholarship. He currently has a 4.188 GPA and expects to graduate in 2022. Located near Charlotte NC, Aaron is a Director at The Sherbert Group, which focuses on tax-advantaged real estate, including affordable housing and historic rehabilitation. When not at work or at school, he spends most of his time with his wife and four children, and particularly loves to take them hiking in the southern Appalachians.
