Get to know Chris Scherley, Senior Associate in Healthcare and Accounting Services

Describe your role at GJM: I work with business clients, and help them maintain their books throughout the year, as well as assisting with tax planning.  I also get involved with some miscellaneous excel projects.  I am currently certified in QuickBooks Online to be our resident QuickBooks ProAdvisor, with desktop certification coming soon.

What do you think is most gratifying about your work? The critical thinking that it can take to help solve client issues with their books.  I love problem solving.

How long have you been with the Firm? Almost 3 years.

What do you like best about working at GJM? The flexibility and the great team environment.

What community organizations or events are you involved in? I am a volunteer football coach at Seneca East High School in Attica.  I’ve always been a football fan, and although Seneca East was a rival high school for me, living in Attica and my cousin being the head coach made me want to help out.

How do you like to spend your spare time? Currently it is spent with my kids and wife, studying for the CPA exam, coaching football, or watching some University of Toledo football games.

Any stories or anecdotes that you think help to convey “who you are?” Amongst my friends, I am known as the lucky one, always happening to be in the right place at the right time for things to happen.  But my argument is a quote from the philosopher Seneca, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

What is something people may be surprised to find out about you? I have an associate’s degree in Web Design/Digital Imaging in addition to my accounting degree.
