Seniors Moving Forward in #TampaBay!


Opening up the program today was Rita Rodriguez, Senior Move Manager and Owner of Seniors Moving Forward. Rita has been a Senior Move Manager for over 6 years and is a member of The National Association of Senior Move Managers. In short, she helps primarily seniors and their families with relocating, decluttering, downsizing and finding places for unwanted items.  Seniors Moving Forward is also a great resource for many other related services. Working closely with family attorneys, guardians and case managers makes for a smooth transition when assisting Seniors with downsizing or moving into assisted living facilities. Rita also actively volunteers and has been involved in community service since the age of 12 and today volunteers her time with Santas for Seniors where Seniors receive gifts from volunteers around the community. Rita understands the complexities of working with seniors during a move and talks about some of the nuances she understands such as the attachment to pictures or collections and how little things can affect them emotionally.

Our next guest was Ira Anderson – Director with the International Accounting and Assurance firm, BDO. Ira joined BDO in 2015 and has over 25 years of public accounting experience. As an assurance director, he devotes his time to providing audit, review, compilation, financial advisory and tax services to clients predominately in the central Florida area. He has served nonprofit organizations, as well as privately held companies in manufacturing, distribution, construction, retail, service and private equity group sectors. Prior to joining BDO, Ira served as an assurance partner for Crowe Horwath in Lakeland, Florida. Ira and Jamie talked briefly about the BDO model but quickly digressed into a community talk focusing on Lakeland. Jamie first moved to Florida in 1996 to attend Florida Southern College in Lakeland so Jamie has strong ties to the community too. Ira talked about how Lakeland has developed over the past two decades and the Catapult group which works to keep economic development moving in Lakeland. They touched on the role of Millennials in Lakeland and they share a funny exchange about The Rocky Horror Picture Show of all things. Jamie reminisces about his days as a Fraternity brother in Pi Kappa Phi too during the segment while a student at Florida Southern College and we learn that Jamie is a vandal and not always so professional – tune in to hear more On Demand at or on iTunes.
