Debbie Ferris


I have 25+ years experience in public and private accounting, have a bachelor's and master's degree in accounting, and am a certified public accountant. 

My strengths include identifying weak internal controls and providing procedures to strengthen those controls to ensure timely, accurate, and complete financial statements and internal management reports. 

I am part of CLA's BizOps (outsourcing) division which allows me to come out to you to evaluate your accounting department and its internal controls, assist the accounting department through difficult projects, and prepare GAAP-compliant financials statements.
