Julio Barina, Partner, CPA

Florida is a perfect setting for golf, with so many courses to choose from. Julio Barina loves to golf, so it is no surprise that the New Jersey native decided to move to Southwest Florida. Not only does he have multiple locations to play, but the nearly year-round warm weather allows him to take advantage of this hobby often.  However, in tax season, the newly-minted firm partner doesn’t see much outside of the office since that is a pretty busy time of year. Another benefit to living in this region are the beautiful beaches, and he makes sure to take a day off here and there to enjoy some vitamin D while reading.

Julio joined the MNMW tax department in 2013.  He knew of the firm’s reputation as a great place to work with a thriving culture, so when an opportunity presented itself to join the team, he jumped at the chance. As a partner in the firm, he is thrilled to help mold the future of the firm with the longstanding tradition of teamwork, support, and collaboration in the family-style culture of MNMW.

When he sets his mind on something, it will be a goal accomplished. In fact, his favorite quote is, “the quality of my thinking determines the quality of my life.” This mindset helped him achieve some of the things he is most proud of in life.  These accomplishments include earning his accounting degree, being the first in his family to receive a college degree, and passing the CPA exam.

Julio is a pretty independent person with a small inner circle; however, he does have a pretty steady confidant in his tuxedo cat Boo. He also enjoys working on projects around his house and hopes to travel to Europe next fall. While being an accountant calls for long hours at times, Julio knows that there needs to be a balance, so he plans for trips, time off, and relaxation when possible.  He hopes that his actions in this world are positive and make it a better place than when he found it. If you get the chance to meet or work with him, you will find that his personality is friendly and welcoming.  After all, you can’t be shy if you are the host of your own video blog, “MNMW Talks.”
