Sharon Poppell, CPA
Growing up on a dairy in Southern Idaho provided me with a strong work ethic at a very young age and my subsequent work as an entrepreneur has given me insight into the effort it takes to grow a successful business. My work in public and private accounting for over 20 years has provided me with firsthand knowledge of best practices in accounting and business operations. I have led experienced teams as an audit manager, specializing in real estate, agriculture, healthcare, and non-profits, which included project management, technical accounting, internal control evaluation, and risk analysis. Next, my leadership role as a Revenue Cycle Manager for a publicly traded company based in Idaho, increased the value for over 20 home health and hospice organizations in the Western United States.
As an owner at Executive Allies, I have worked with clients on developing financial proformas, cash flow forecasts, cash management, and internal control process improvements. Through this experience, I have expanded and established my industry specific knowledge in SaaS, construction, and manufacturing. The interim controller and CFO level services I have provided to companies with revenues exceeding $30 million have supported accounting departments through acquisitions, mergers, and significant turnover. In these roles, I have leveraged my knowledge and experience to provide business owners with the fundamental accounting structure needed to provide the foundation required to support rapidly scaling companies.
Overall, my true passion lies in teaching and mentoring business leaders to be able to take their accounting and financial knowledge to the next level. I find joy in guiding and empowering owners to fully understand the numbers behind their business to define their own success.
My definition of success is having time available to spend with my husband of nearly 20 years, my three adventurous and intelligent daughters, and our two dogs, Bacon and Biggie. I love where I live and enjoy investing time and resources into my community by actively serving on the board of two local non-profits. Running, reading, backpacking, skiing, and gardening are my favorite things to do on the weekends.Contact Sharon
