Michelle Graham Colombo CPA, LLC is focused on assisting small businesses and entrepreneurs in achieving their business goals with a proactive, strategic and personal approach to their financial welfare.
When Michelle’s father started his own small business 30+ years ago it sparked a curiosity that she has carried throughout her professional career. As she spent numerous summers learning his trade, meeting his customers and assisting in operations she became fascinated with the drive it took for entrepreneurs to turn their idea into a livelihood. Now a Certified Public Accountant, Michelle aims to assist small businesses in maximizing their potential by utilizing her expertise in strategic finance and accounting.
Michelle attended Texas State University on a full scholarship and graduated magna cum laude with a double major in accounting and finance in just 3 ½ years. Prior to graduation she completed two internships and spent several years with PricewaterhouseCoopers and UHY LLP auditing both public and private companies, benefit plans, non-profit organizations, internal controls and developing firm training initiatives.
Michelle applied all that she had learned in public accounting as she transitioned to the Oil & Gas Industry as the Assistant Controller and later Manager of Financial Planning & Analysis of a leading regional gas storage company. Most recently she served as the Chief Financial Officer of a fundraising company where she prepared financial statements, tax returns, managed human resources and saved the company tens of thousands of dollars each year by streamlining operations and procedures all while enhancing employee benefits. Both businesses closed on successful sales with the aid of Michelle’s projections, consultation and financial modeling.
