AFC is the nicest team of people I've ever worked with in my
Janet Butler Berry | Advisory Solutions Manager
I joined Advisors for Change in 2017 after more than 20 years working in non-profit arts organizations. I have always loved bridging the financial/analytical and programmatic worlds within an organization. I work hard every day to ensure that the financial processes and reports are useful to the managers, leadership and the Board members of our partner organizations.
I appreciate that AFC is values-driven; we work best when our values support and strengthen our partners' values. AFCspecializes in building the capacity of small and medium nonprofits; the tools we use and our personal approach to advising are meant to build and enhance, not replace, the organization's own financial department. One great advantage of working at AFC is having access to tools and systems that your firm might not otherwise be able to afford.
As a non-profit manager I enjoyed mentoring interns and early-career professionals, and I’m glad that I’m able to do similar work with our partners. It’s rewarding to see individuals grow their own financial skills and take ownership of the work. I love working with a team of colleagues that all speak the same language (accounting) but bring a rich variety of experiences and perspectives to the table.
When I'm not working, I love exploring cultural and historical sites around DC, eating at food trucks, reading, and watching movies.
