Assurance Services


Since 2002, Allison Harrell has been providing assurance services to governmental, not-for-profit, and for-profit entities. A graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Master of Accountancy with an emphasis in Assurance Services, she has blazed a trail for accounting professionals on the fast track by making shareholder in her early thirties. Soon afterward, she was asked to lead the People and Recruiting Committees, where she has been able to focus her time on team member recruiting, retention, and career success. She personally mentors several young professionals and works to influence the direction of the firm based on the shifts in thinking by the professionals entering the workforce each year.

She provides a range of services which include financial statement audits, compliance audits, internal control studies, agreed-upon procedures, financial reviews, outsourced accounting, and not-for-profit consulting. Allison also has experience with operational audits of state agencies and certain local governments while employed with the State of Florida Auditor General prior to joining the firm.
