Patricia Schirmer

CPA, Manager


Patricia has more than 10 years of experience in public accounting, including 5 years serving as an audit manager, before joining Harris in 2015. She specializes in financial statement audits and reviews for nonprofit organizations and employee benefit plans, and possesses ERISA compliance expertise.
