08/30/2021

Good afternoon everyone! Labor Day is right around the corner. We hope everyone is gearing up for a fun and safe weekend! Today we are giving a shout-out to Cynthia "Cyndi" Clements. Cyndi took a little bit of a scenic route to becoming a CPA, deciding that she wanted to increase her knowledge and skills and move up to the next level at age 39. She earned her master's in Accounting through the University of Arizona and her CPA license in 2015. Cyndi has worked in various areas, from non-profit and retirement plan audits to payroll and problem solving for clients who need a little extra accounting help. During the pandemic, Cyndi became her employer's specialist for ERC and PPP loan (and forgiveness) assistance and solutions. Cyndi says that the silver lining is being able to help clients who are most in need of government assistance and help them survive these difficult times.

In her free time, Cyndi enjoys spending time with family and friends. Her hobbies include hiking, baking and drawing. While she enjoys "going to church" through Zoom, she looks forward to a time when it is safe to go in person and even travel and visit other countries safely again. Cyndi has two extremely adorable cats, Kerfluffle and Floofie, who have been good companions as we transition through these challenging and uncertain times. Cyndi, thanks for sharing some of your awesome life with us, and thanks for being an ASCPA member!

08/23/2021

Good afternoon, ASCPA! We hope everyone feels rested from the weekend. Today we are shouting out member Carolyn Pataconi. Carolyn has been a member since 2014. We asked Carolyn to tell us a bit of herself, and this is what she told us: Carolyn said she feels like she's living the dream. As her passion, she's been fostering dogs for a non-profit rescue group and, so far, she's had 27 fosters. Professionally, she's worked for the Auditor General's Office for over six years, followed by more than 13 years in Pima County's Finance Dept. At the County, Carolyn was in Internal Audit for three years and then moved to a supervisor position in the Revenue Division.

With 20 years in the ASRS, she recently retired, and now she spends her time as a volunteer for another dog-related non-profit. This non-profit focuses on training (for the dog and dog parents). Carolyn also sits on their board as Treasurer. Although moving from governmental fund accounting to non-profit accounting wasn't a giant leap, Carolyn said she is still presented with accounting challenges. She loves that she gets to work with dogs and still does accounting even though she doesn't get paid! Carolyn says getting to spend time with her grandkids is just the icing on the cake!

Thanks for sharing, Carolyn, and congratulations on your retirement and on living the dream!
