Over 30,000 public accounting firms are enrolled in the AICPA Peer Review Program which requires a review of their firm every three years. Firms have peer reviews because of the public interest in quality of accounting, audit and attestation services provided by public accounting firms. Also most state boards of accountancy require licensees to undergo a peer review, which they may also call a compliance review, in order to practice in the state.
Gene Garrelts, President of Orizon LLC and Orizon CPAs LLC remarked “Our firm has a tradition of professionals serving on state and national accountancy boards. One of Jodi’s goals was to help our profession in a national leadership role. Now she has an expanded opportunity to give back to the public accounting profession.”
Jodi has over 18 years of experience, primarily focused on assurance services in the governmental, manufacturing/distribution, higher education and non-profit areas. She was recognized as a 40 Under 40 Midlands Business Journal Award winner. Jodi is a graduate of Midland Lutheran College.
