Barbara Nooney is a certified public accountant, personal financial specialist and a partner of Flavin Nooney & Person, CPAs and Advisors.

She earned both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in accounting at Western New England University in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Nooney began her career in Massachusetts where she developed expertise in tax, audit and financial planning. She moved with her family to the Space Coast in 2007, joining the firm of Flavin & Associates. She was instrumental in expanding the firm’s audit and small business practice, and in 2012 the firm changed its name to Flavin Nooney & Person.

Nooney is passionate about giving back to the community and has volunteered her time and expertise with a number of non-profit organizations. She currently serves as treasurer for Nana’s Children’s Home, serving abandoned and at-risk children, located in West Melbourne.   Throughout her career, Nooney has specialized in helping small business owners and not-for-profit organizations meet their accounting, tax and financial planning needs. In recent years she has directed her focus to financial planning, wealth management and tax solutions for individuals as well.

“I have always gravitated toward helping others, both personally and professionally,” Nooney said. “It is very gratifying to watch a not-for-profit flourish in a community where people need the services provided by that not-for-profit. The end goal is to help an individual or family enrich their lives. Personal financial planning allows me to further enrich the lives of individuals and family at a more personal level. It is a perfect fit!”

Nooney has been with her husband, Mark, for 30 years and they have two children. She devotes her spare time to both her 3-year-old granddaughter and her 92-year-old father.
