Accounting has been part of Cynthia’s life since childhood as her father was in the profession as well as many members of her family. She began working in the field in 1978 and completed her designation in 1992, at which point she had already been in her own practice for a year. She began providing computer consulting along with solid accounting knowledge. Her career path has also been interspersed with a few years controller for an international pump company and assistant controller for a large lumber retailer. Cynthia’s training, however, has come primarily from a number of well-known CA and CGA firms.
