MAY LUNCHEON: 5/5/2020: Deanah O'Donnell Simple Steps You Can Take


 Deanah O’Donnell is an Enrolled Agent with DeCaprio CPA & Associates PC in Branford. She specializes in litigation accounting and tax representation. She credits her fraud and sleuth skills to working in loss prevention in the restaurant industry in her early career.

Before working in public accounting, she worked in the private sector in acquisitions and mergers as a loss prevention accountant. Her clients range from micro business, self-employed entrepreneurs to larger employers. She has consulted clients and other small business owners on the importance of fraud and how to keep their small business safe. Deanah enjoys working with clients and helping them protect their business and watching them accomplish their goals. She also enjoys working with the team at her firm. Phil DeCaprio, the founder of the firm in which she works is one of the most sought-after forensic accounting experts in the state and she enjoys working with a mentor with such a broad skillset.

Deanah will share some simple steps that you can take to protect your business and livelihood from fraud. The world of “pink collar crime” ( or financial crimes committed by women) is one of the fastest growing areas for fraud, along with small business fraud. Small businesses cannot absorb these types of losses. Often most business owners do not know what to do to prevent or detect these types of crimes. The safeguards include:

  • Learning about how and why business fraud happens
  • Simple steps to take to protect your business from fraud 
  • Learning what to be on the lookout for and how to protect your most valuable assets! Your business, reputation and hard work.

HyperFit MD - Dr. Charles Guglin

Dr. Charles Guglin of HyperFit MD will join us to discuss: Why "Normal" is a Marker for Disease. Doing an End Run Around our Healthcare System to Maintain Your Quality of Life Well Into Old Age.

His  presentation will briefly touch upon how and why our present healthcare system fails us as we age. By the end of his talk, you will learn why he opened his center 4 years ago and what services are offered.

Dr. Charles Guglin is General Surgeon with 35 years of experience in the Milford and the New Haven communities. He started studying Functional and Age Management Medicine as he grew older and realized that the allopathic community had nothing to offer most folks except pharmaceuticals that merely manage symptoms without addressing the underlying causes (usually lifestyle related) of age related diseases.
