Personal Philosophy

“I love to provide clients with accurate and well-presented financial data that provides meaningful information to aid in decision-making.  Nothing brings me greater joy than a beautiful spreadsheet!”

Get to Know Lynette

I work with many different clients in a range of industries. Some are ongoing clients, others require specific project support. I also fulfill temporary engagements where there is an interim vacancy. I perform all activities in the accounting spectrum from budgeting to data entry to financial reporting – reconciliations are my favorite! 

I have had a number of successes for Abacus clients including:

  • Identifying areas for potential cost savings
  • Creatively organizing data within an accounting software to present information 
  • Educating my clients with basic financial knowledge and terminology

Previously I served as a financial controller in the retail, financial services and technology industries.
