Angela M. Zakon

Position: Supervisor
Email: azakon@lmrpa.com
Categories: Professional Staff
Location: North Conway

Angela joined the Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, Professional Association team in 2008 and currently serves as Supervisor in our North Conway office where she specializes in a variety of tax and audit services. Her areas of expertise include audit, reviews, and compilation services within the nonprofit sector as well as tax preparation and planning for individuals, partnerships, and sCorps in a wide range of industries. In her role as Supervisor, Angela gets to do what she does best: use her accounting and business skills to help individuals and organizations financially succeed.

Beyond her professional support of Leone, McDonnell & Roberts’ clients, Angela also lends her invaluable insight to colleagues and local organizations as a teacher and trainer. She has partnered with the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council’s Nonprofit Bootcamp where she’s taught courses on several industry-relevant topics including

• Internal controls
• Risk assessment
• Reading financial statements
• Board responsibilities for nonprofit organizations

Angela’s problem solving and math skills prompted her to pursue a BS in Accountancy from Case Western Reserve University where she graduated cum laude. In 1992, she launched her professional accounting career at Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) where she gained invaluable experience partnering with clients that specialized in financial services. Coopers & Lybrand is also where Angela first developed her affinity for teaching and training.

Over the last 25+ years, Angela has gained the experience, skills, and competencies needed to serve and support clients with a diverse range of accounting issues. Her unwavering professionalism, follow-through, and organizational capabilities are just some of the many key differentiators that have contributed to Angela’s success at Leone, McDonnell & Roberts.

When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Angela spending time with her husband, Robert, and two sons at their Center Conway home, where she stays active by gardening, hiking, skiing, and reading. For Angela, the combination of working at an accounting firm with such a strong commitment to quality while living in a beautiful, small mountain town is the ultimate professional/personal life balance.
