Cheryl has over 30 years’ experience providing financial and tax services to individuals and businesses across many industries. She specializes in the nonprofit, construction, and professional services sectors. She consults on a variety of business and tax issues. She has planned and performed hundreds of audits, reviews and compilations —compliance and financial—for construction and engineering companies, nonprofit entities, cities and other governmental agencies, pension plans and HUD projects. Cheryl’s expertise also lies in general business consulting, including guiding nonprofits and for profit entities in the implementation of strong internal controls and facilitating board involvement, tax planning, entity selection and pension plan compliance.
