Anne L. Reinstein, 2018 Hispanic Women of Distinction, CPA, Owner and Tax Accountant, McCleary & Reinstein, P.A.
“As a growing minority, Hispanic women have led the way in business and have proven to be strong role models for other women as well as the next generation.”
If Anne Reinstein had a theme song, it likely would be “Climb Every Mountain.” When this busy CPA isn’t helping her company’s clients with their accounting and tax issues, she climbs some of the world’s tallest peaks to raise funds to help those less fortunate.
Anne is a co-founding member, vice president/treasurer and frequent media spokesperson for Project Change, a non-profit group that builds schools and orphanages and rescues children enduring Uganda’s horrific conditions.
To help raise funds for Project Change and other charitable endeavors, she and five other climbers twice scaled Africa’s tallest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro. Anne also surmounted Colorado’s 14,000 foot high seven peaks to raise funds and bring awareness of the global problem of the trafficking of women and children.
For four consecutive years, she and her husband, Paul Marley, traveled to Paul’s home country to raise money to benefit the United Kingdom’s Multiple Sclerosis Society by climbing U.K’s ten peaks in an extraordinarily short ten hours. In addition, Anne has been mountaineering in California, Texas, New Mexico, Washington, Thailand, Utah and her native Peru. She hopes to one day ascend Himalaya’s Mt. Everest.
Shortly after undergoing an elective bilateral mastectomy, Anne completed the New York City 26.2 mile marathon in 2016 and plans to run again this year.
Anne is a Magna Cum Laude graduate from Florida Atlantic University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and her Associate of Arts degree from Broward College. In 2003, she earned her Certified Public Accountant license from the State of Virginia.
Using her accounting expertise as a CPA, Anne donates her time as a Board Member/Director for the Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation by reviewing their financial statements and annual tax return.
In Miami, on a fully-accessible beach, Anne also volunteers for the Sabrina Cohen Foundation as part of their Adaptive Beach Program that helps to physically transport the disabled into the ocean to allow them to experience the delight of the sea, perhaps for the first time. She also has served as an English teacher for Global Volunteers, Inc. in India and volunteers and/or is a donor for Women for Women International, the Humane Society of Broward County, H.A.N.D.Y, and other non-profits.
Anne also proudly sponsors the College of African Wildlife Management in Tanzania and is a benefactor for the Orphanage El Niño Emanuel in Peru.
Anne and Paul have been married for more than eight years and make their home in Davie, Florida. Besides working, mountain climbing and volunteering, Anne enjoys working out, running and reading.
