It's refreshing to work in the nonprofit realm. People are passionate about the work they do and appreciate the support we provide.
Becky Scherr | Senior Associate
I joined Advisors for Change in 2015 as a registered CPA with 20 years of experience in a variety of audit & accounting roles. Learning is very important to me and the nature of the work we do provides continuous learning opportunities in accounting, people skills and technology. I'm proud to call myself an accounting geek!
Working with nonprofits is meaningful and more than "number crunching". Our clients are committed to their organization's mission. It's exciting and rewarding to work hand-in-hand with them and see the positive impact of their missions within the community.
We help partners set up accounting systems and establish a monthly close process. Through my work with the partners, timely and accurate financial statements are produced for their Board meetings. Often, this is something the Board isn't accustomed to! It's a great feeling when everything clicks into place.
AFC provides more than straight-up accounting and financial management services. We recognize that every nonprofit and the people working there are unique. Listening to our clients and cultivating relationships helps us understand how we can best serve them.
When I'm not advising for change I'm outside! My husband, four children and I enjoy spending time exploring National Parks. I hope to visit all the parks and have stamps in my passport book to remember it by!
