“I consider every engagement to be a collective effort, with a culture built on integrity, trust and transparency. This approach and environment provides developmental opportunities, collaboration and exceptional results, while establishing accountability for all team members.”
Andrea Gianni started with the firm 13 years ago as a staff auditor, which explains her ability to share her accounting expertise and relate to all experience levels within the firm, as well as her clients. This is especially critical as she mentors the staff in client relationships and positions of leadership.
She prides herself on developing strong client partnerships over the years, which are based on communication, attention to detail and staying ahead of the curve in engagement efficiencies.
Staying Ahead of Deadlines, Staying Close to Clients
As a partner in the Bethesda, Maryland office, Andrea provides audit and review services to non-profits, employee benefit plans and commercial industries. In addition, she prepares and reviews various information returns, such as the Form 990 and Form 5500. Andrea also has over a decade of experience and extensive knowledge in preparing the Form LM-2 for labor organizations. She participated directly with the Office of Labor-Management in the testing and implementing of the current electronic forms systems version of the Department of Labor’s Form LM-2.
Andrea earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Accounting, as well as her Master’s in Business Administration from West Virginia Wesleyan College. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants.
She is proud to be a key principal in Team MJG, a group dedicated to raising awareness and funds for those diagnosed with brain cancer.
She served as the team captain on her college basketball team at West Virginia Wesleyan College. Now a “retired” athlete, Andrea enjoys training for and competing in triathlons. Her most cherished accomplishment was becoming an “Ironman” in 2014 (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run).
Travelling is another favorite pastime of Andrea’s. “I’ve found that the adventures of travelling and having a trip on the horizon help me maintain the perfect work-life balance for my life.” Her favorite place to visit was Scotland, where she has made lifelong friends. Next on her list? You’ll have to ask her.
