Melissa is great to work with. She understands the needs of short and long range financial planning. She is able to articulate technical financial issues into fire chief and board language. She helped me develop financial documents and spreadsheets that were easily updated and allowed me to easily track
organizational priorities.

Melissa has been working with my organization for over a year, and I am thrilled with the progress we’ve made under her guidance. As a small nonprofit, we are unable to have an in-house CFO and we’ve struggled with our bookkeeping and accounting in the past. Melissa has helped us become financially efficient, and has designed new ways to streamline our processes and procedures for more reliable financial reporting. Melissa is dedicated, patient, responsive, and thorough; and her work has had a tremendous impact on our organization in a very short period of time.

Shelby filled a very critical role for our organization. Her analysis and recommendations helped reframe the organizations financial structure allowing it to continue to receive funding. She also revamped the financial structure and reporting to ensure funders and board members could read and understand the monthly financials and tax returns.

I’ve had the privilege to work with Melissa Tomlinson for three years. She is thorough, detailed oriented, knowledgeable in more than not-for-profit accounting and a true team player. I appreciate Melissa’s ability to listen and to truly understand the core of our organization. She has helped put together our yearly budget in a successful strategic manner.

I recommend Melissa wholeheartedly as her contributions to the Tucson Girls Chorus have transformed and moved our organization forward in very meaningful ways.
