Orla has engaged with tax from many angles throughout her professional career. First, at law firms, she drafted tax provisions in contracts and various tax disclosures. As a tax advisor to financial services companies and the IRS, she helped them understand their rights and obligations under the tax code. And now as a Principal at KPMG, she advises institutional investors “cradle to grave” from tax planning through tax reporting and compliance. Unless and until we have a postcard-size tax return and a single volume tax code, Orla's personal mission is to help shine a light on the tax code so that all players can understand the rules and agitate for positive change.
Orla has a degree in foreign service from Georgetown University and a law degree (J.D.) from Columbia University.
