About Shaquille Riston

Shaquille Riston is our new Financial Advisor! Her financial expertise has long been needed for the MBAC program.

She will be assisting clients one-on-one with financial coaching, assistance, and access to capital.

She is very family-oriented and loves to laugh. If she can laugh, it’s a good time.

I worked in corporate accounting for 7 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and MBA in Finance, currently studying for my CPA Exam. Small business owner, owns Accounting and Bookkeeping Firm (Riston Financial Service Group) that’s been established since 2021.
