Cyndi’s audit and assurance experience includes working with closely-held and family-owned companies as well as large international corporations, and believes that her clients deserve more out of an audit than just the financial statements, but should also be provided with suggestions for possible improvements to processes and operations. Her clients include those in manufacturing, distribution, construction, professional service and private foundations.
