Vanessa M. Dutton

I've enjoyed working with various clients, staff and industries throughout my career and find myself learning something new every day. I love working in a challenging environment, assisting clients and seeing them benefit from our advice and service.

OVERVIEW

Since 1998, Vanessa has set her sights on insurance, nonprofit entities and government-focused public accounting where her passion lies in serving colleges and universities, school districts and governmental agencies. Vanessa also shares her knowledge by providing local training to audit staff with regards to auditing, Yellow Book and government.

When working with Vanessa, clients can expect a trusted advisor who works on-site with her audit teams in order to address issues as they arise. Vanessa believes in providing timely reviews and updates of the audit work as it progresses.

In her free time, Vanessa enjoys spending quality time with her family, including her son, as they hang out with cousins and get competitive during family game night. For entertainment, her family likes to catch a college football game, cheering on the University of Oklahoma. Vanessa catches up on her favorite Netflix shows on the treadmill each morning and gleans inspiration from Pinterest for delicious home cooked meals at night.
