With the COVID-19 pandemic having a major impact on both the financial markets and the personal assets of many, Cicely Jones, CEO and founder of MPA Financials, remains on a mission to equip the Birmingham community with tools to attain financial freedom and establish generational wealth.
Via her website and social media pages, Jones educates the community about matters like the extended July 15 tax deadline, as well as how to properly apply for economic injury relief payments, stimulus packages, and Small Business Alliance (SBA) loans and grants.
Jones set her sights on leadership at an early age, with aspirations of becoming a teacher, like the many women she grew to admire at Mobile’s Bessie C. Fonvielle Elementary School.
After moving to Birmingham in 1999, Jones began her professional career in the accounting department at an executive firm.
Jones also serves as vice president of the Heart of Birmingham Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association, a nationally recognized organization that empowers women from diverse occupations through leadership, educational, and networking support.
