A supervisor in Gunnip & Company's assurance practice, Lyn has been with the firm for more than 25 years and continues to work with many of the clients she’s had since day one - a testament to the firm, and more specifically to Lyn who differentiates herself by paying attention to clients. Lyn has a background in education, allowing her to offer clients a fresh perspective, providing new and different options to help their business. “Whether or not it’s what they want to hear, clients know that I will get them the answers they need,” she says.
For team members, Lyn’s background is a plus when it comes to training new employees in skills that aren’t necessarily taught in the classroom, such as how to treat clients, what to look for and how to get the best answers by asking the right types of questions. Lyn’s most recent accomplishments on behalf of her clients include:
Researching, and overseeing implementation of accounting software and information technology products. Lyn has developed best practices and assisted in consolidating reporting methods. Her comprehensive training has saved her clients a significant amount of time and money.
Helping clients avoid penalties and interest imposed by the IRS. Lyn has worked closely with clients who are behind in tax return filings, persistently communicating with them to get the required information, and ensuring accurate filings that are now up-to-date.
Lyn remains well versed in technology and its constant state of flux due to the nature of her position. Likewise, she keeps clients up to date, and feels that their business is her business. “There is so much information out there right now and things change so quickly. I advise clients to embrace technology and not to worry about making mistakes. If they do make a mistake, there’s usually nothing that we can’t undo and make right,” she says.
Lyn lives in Bear with her husband and their golden retriever. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the theater, reading mystery novels and traveling. Lyn and her husband are on a quest to visit every national park in the United States.
