Her experience encompasses all phases of financial and tax services with over thirty years of public accounting experience with closely held businesses primarily engaged in the manufacturing, distribution, service, construction, and real estate industries.

In addition, Lynne’s experience has allowed her to develop specialized reporting and tax knowledge with international companies doing business in the US, US companies expanding outside of the US, mergers and acquisitions changes, and capital investments.
Working closely with business owners during the financial and tax process, Lynne strives to deliver strategic growth planning, accountability and reliability to the projects she oversees.
