Shyla McCarty is from Austin, Texas and has lived in Oklahoma on and off for over 20 years. She attended the University of Central Oklahoma as a triple major, and graduated with her Associates Degree in Business, Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting, and Bachelor’s Degree in Finance!
Shyla feels she was led to this career because her family was unknowledgeable and fearful about the topic of taxes, so she wanted to learn more to help her family and alleviate that fear for them. Through this process, she then fell in love with working in the tax career field. Shyla enjoys her job very much because she loves being able to take a small piece of someone’s burden off their plate and have them know that someone is on their side. Shyla was led to Polston Tax because of the company’s emphasis on helping others.
When she is not at work, Shyla enjoys baking, anime, reading Manga/Manhwa and learning languages. She loves going to the arcade- although she is pretty bad at most of the games, the few that she’s good at win her enough tickets to get a big prize and she has fun trying out all the games! One thing that people are surprised to learn about Shyla is seeing her read Japanese or Korean. While in college, she studied Japanese- and recently just took up Korean. When Shyla finds a culture interesting, she likes to learn about it and eventually finds herself studying the language as well.
