Steve ensures that his clients’ accounting work is performed on a timely basis and their financial statements are issued promptly to help them make important business decisions. He is the point of contact for his clients when they have questions or need guidance about their finances to help make their business more successful. Steve manages the accounting and bookkeeping team and also assists Cheryl with special projects.
“It is a pleasure to come to work every day because of the terrific people at CFO Your Way. Cheryl has done a great job assembling a team that work hard and are fun to work with. That attitude starts at the top with Cheryl, who cares a lot about her staff. It also shows in the clients we have; they have all been very welcoming to me and are serious about their business.”
Lucille has owned and managed a family-run business, so she has firsthand understanding of the importance of maintaining accurate financial records.
“My role as a bookkeeper at CFO Your Way is rewarding in several ways, from being on site and working with the people there, to being part of the team that supports Cheryl.”
Stephanie has worked many years as an office manager and executive assistant, handling program and event planning, bookkeeping, communications, and project coordination in the U.S. and abroad (she is a native of Switzerland). As business assistant at CFO Your Way, she handles our administrative needs, communicates with clients and colleagues, manages internal company projects, and implements social media marketing activities.
“I was interested in working with a smaller company, so this position and team fit nicely with my goals, and I like the variety of work I’m doing for Cheryl.”
Leandra has extensive bookkeeping experience, having worked for a busy franchise company, a CPA and tax accountant, and through her co-ownership of a window cleaning company, where she handled all bookkeeping and tax filing activities. Leandra performs the entire range of bookkeeping services for our clients—from reconciliations to managing accounts payable and receivable to preparing accurate financial reports, statements and projections. She is a QuickBooks ace and is well-versed in several popular office administration and customer relationship management programs, all assets to the small businesses she works with at CFO Your Way.
Leandra holds a bachelor’s degree in communication and media studies from William Paterson University, where she was an on-air radio personality. She took on bookkeeping when she and her husband opened their business and she got hooked on numbers. She says she likes that numbers are black and white. “They’re the facts that tell you where the business stands financially at any given time.” Of her choice to join us at CFO Your Way, Leandra said that “the professionalism and high standards of the team are a breath of fresh air!”
Lorraine came to CFO Your Way after more than 30 years of experience in senior accounting and financial management. Her thorough knowledge of accounting and operations, and prior role as a controller are helping our clients in various ways. Among them are managing payroll, preparing accurate financial statements, overseeing accounts payable and accounts receivable, and preparing investor information.
“After many years of working in one office, I’m enjoying working with multiple clients in different industries, with a fabulous group of people. The teamwork at CFO Your Way is astounding. The clients are amazing. Cheryl has created a tight knit team who all have the clients’ best interests at the forefront.”
Megan got bitten by the numbers bug in college and has been working in accounting and finance ever since. Her career includes two interesting stints at cable networks CNBC and MSNBC, as a financial analyst and later, as a financial manager for primetime programs. Her start in finance began when she worked at a bank and as she tells it, once she started in the banking arena, she was hooked and set her sights on a future in finance.
In addition to several NJ companies, Megan has also lent her expertise in maintaining and reconciling financial reports, budgeting, financial forecasting and analysis, tax form filing, and more as a volunteer in her community. She earned her BS in finance from William Paterson University.
“I have always enjoyed accounting and finance. The data I gather and the analyses I perform provide business owners with operational insights that enable them to make better business decisions. I am excited to be a part of the CFO Your Way team, and the opportunity to learn about and assist various types of businesses.”
