Our Team

Riane Rodrigues de Souza

Hi, I am Riane and I am originally from Brazil. I moved to Houston in 2015 to learn English, and I loved this city so much that I decided to stay longer. I am currently working to get my Accounting degree at University of Houston Downtown. I started working at RP Jones CPA in 2020 as an Intern and I cannot measure how much I have learned and grown since I arrived.

Some of my current responsibilities and passions include preparing business and personal tax returns, bookkeeping for 20+ clients of a variety of sizes, and property renditions. I also work with government entities such as the Texas Workforce Commission, Texas Comptroller, the Harris County Appraisal District, and the IRS to solve problems whenever it is needed. On my time off I like to watch every single show on Netflix.
