Who I work with

I work with nonprofit organizations, typically 501c(3)s and 501c(4)s, with revenue in the $5–$30 million range looking for assistance with GAAP-compliant outsourced accounting and grant-compliant accounting.

My specialty

I specialize in GAAP-compliant accounting for nonprofit organizations, audit schedule preparation, and identifying and correcting prior-year accounting issues and errors.

Results I have delivered

I analyzed, assessed and corrected 2 years of incorrect accounting for a $15 million multi-entity organization leading to financial audits. I assessed and corrected accounting, converted an organization to a cloud-based accounting system and added additional technologies to create accounting efficiencies for a religious organization. I developed a forecasting methodology for associations to plan annual results and report to their board of directors. I also corrected and redesigned an accounting system to provide compliant grant accounting.

Unique things about me

I used to sing in a band, and I sang the national anthem at a Baltimore Orioles game at Camden Yards.
