Shannon is the owner of SMB Accounting and Consulting LLC, a small business CPA firm specializing in controllership and federal government contracts. She started her career as a civilian accountant for the USAF. Her multi-national staff in England, Japan and the United States quickly taught her the importance of effective communication and efficient teamwork. Exposure to business practices that brokered fraud, waste and abuse positioned her to attain a vast amount of firsthand experience in a short time and gather an in depth understanding of requirements associated with federal government contract accounting and general accounting principles. Shannon’s comprehensive attention to detail and ethical predication enable her to focus on providing the right set of tools to businesses so that anyone can succeed. She has presented seminars at the UCF Business Incubator and Groundswell to assist startups with federal government contracting issues and provide guidance on setting up their accounting systems for success.
