Cheerful. Warm. Inspired. This engaging tax whiz loves numbers and nonprofits alike.
Whether she’s backpacking in the Wallowas or sightseeing in Europe, Cindy’s quiet enthusiasm bubbles over into all that she does – including her work at Perkins. A senior tax manager, Cindy is a self-professed superfan of the 990. “I have a soft spot for nonprofits,” she explains, “because these organizations work to better lives.” She also has a passion for working with individuals and small businesses. “I appreciate the heart that goes into small businesses and the longstanding connections I make with clients.” And Cindy is thrilled to be part of a company that shares her values. “Perkins shareholders love their clients, their employees and the community.”
Curiosity and creativity abound in Cindy’s life. She’s an expert seamstress who used to whip up intricate Halloween costumes for her kids. She loves the outdoors and has hiked extensively in eastern Oregon. She’s an avid reader of historical novels and is especially enthralled by European history. One day, she hopes to visit the British Isles. And she can’t help but laugh at her travel plans when she considers her childhood family road trips. “My dad was a civil engineer. I’ve seen every dam and power plant west of the Mississippi!” For our part, we’re just glad to share the journey with this lovely accountant!
