Meet the SR team: Dana Cinquepalmi, CPA, Staff Accountant
My day at ShindelRock is different all the time. I enjoy being in contact with our clients and helping them with various accounting and tax needs. On any given day, I could be helping them use QuickBooks, completing bank reconciliations, expense classification, responding to tax notices, or preparing year-end tax projections. I enjoy the diversity of our client types of individuals, corporations and partnerships.
How long have you been with ShindelRock? What do you like about the firm?
I started with ShindelRock in August of 2006. At ShindelRock we have a great work environment, everyone is so friendly and committed to our company, clients and each other. We work as a team to provide our clients with the best possible service. The partners at ShindelRock lead by example by practicing a work life balance, and encourage us to grow as individuals and professionals.
What is your background, education and professional?
One of my first jobs out of high school was for a small manufacturing company in Romulus, were I was first exposed to the accounting field. I worked my way up from receptionist to office manager/bookkeeper. Over the past 25 plus years, I have work experience as office manager/bookkeeper in a variety of industries which include manufacturing, electrical and service industries.
I obtained my associates degree in accounting from Schoolcraft College and completed my bachelors degree in Accountancy from Walsh College in 2003. Since joining ShindelRock, I have become a QuickBooks advisor and certified. I have been volunteering with the Accounting Aide Society, preparing tax returns for low income individuals since 2007. In January 2013, I obtained my Michigan certified public accountant (CPA) license.
