Halina Ho

Assistant Tax Manager

Since a young age, Halina has been inspired by her grandfather, who worked at the IRS in Vietnam. His influence sparked her interest in tax accounting and set her on a path to pursue a similar career. Today, Halina is an Assistant Tax Manager at Edwards & Associates, where she handles complex tax laws and regulations, including tax compliance, planning, research and analysis, and tax return preparation.

With nearly 10 years of accounting experience, Halina finds immense fulfillment in helping clients optimize their financial situations while ensuring compliance and maximizing tax benefits. She holds both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in accounting, and her recent CPA licensure has solidified her expertise, enabling her to enhance strategies for tax savings, planning, and compliance.

Originally from Bien Hoa, Vietnam, Halina now resides in Frisco with her two sons, who share her love of exploring new places and cultures. Outside the office, Halina stays active through hiking, nurtures her creative side with flower arranging, and experiments with flavors by creating delicious meals for friends and family.
