She has developed financial information packages and met with lenders on her clients’ behalf to obtain favorable financing. Additionally, she routinely meets with her clients’ other professional advisors, including attorneys, accountants, consultants, and bankers, to ensure that the appropriate information is communicated.

Cyndy’s forensic accounting experience began with the charge to recreate records destroyed by a flood in the 1980s and has developed over the years as she has served clients in the midst of legal battles and recovering from employee fraud and embezzlement. She uses her experience from having installed dozens of accounting systems and creating systems of internal controls to detect and correct errors and protect the integrity of the financial records.
