NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ -  Patricia Daquila, MBA, CPA and Senior Tax Advisor at Lassus Wherley, was recently named one of New Jersey’s 2017 Best 50 Women in Business. The Best 50 Women in Business awards program honors New Jersey’s most dynamic women in business that have been making headlines in their fields.
