Spotlight on Sponsors

By Gail Browning

When the Lan­dis Arbore­tum hosts its annu­al 5K Peren­ni­al For­est Run/​Walk, spon­sor­ship that under­writes the cost of the event ensures max­i­mum ben­e­fit for the orga­ni­za­tion. Shelly Van­Nos­trand, CPA PLLC, of John­stown, a long time cross coun­try run­ner and nature lover, gen­er­ous­ly con­tributed to this year’s event in August.

A bit of his­to­ry on Shelly and her com­pa­ny: Shelly ran cross coun­try at Gloversville High School, grad­u­at­ed from the Uni­ver­si­ty at Albany, and was employed by Leav­en­worth and Com­pa­ny. She earned her CPA, became a part­ner, and even­tu­al­ly took over the com­pa­ny in 2011, cre­at­ing Shelly Van Nos­trand, CPA, PLLC. Orig­i­nal­ly in two loca­tions, the com­pa­ny relo­cat­ed both offices to one larg­er site at 105 South Com­rie Avenue in John­stown. The move allowed the firm to bet­ter serve their clients in and around the greater Ful­ton and Mont­gomery coun­ty areas. It pro­vides a wide range of ser­vices includ­ing account­ing for busi­ness­es, fam­i­lies and not-for-prof­its; per­son­al and cor­po­ra­tion tax prepa­ra­tion; trust and estate account­ing; sales tax work; pay­roll pro­cess­ing and report­ing; quar­ter­ly W2 prepa­ra­tion relat­ing to pay­roll oper­a­tions; and any cus­tomized detail work required for tax submissions.

Shelly’s employ­ees keep abreast of changes and trends in the dynam­ic field of account­ing. The company’s phi­los­o­phy is to pre­pare and assist its clients in stream­lin­ing their inter­nal process­es to enhance busi­ness oper­a­tions, result­ing in a more prof­itable bot­tom line.

Shelly’s leisure time is focused on her children’s activ­i­ties and run­ning the rail trail. This August she plans to enter the Lan­dis 5K race with her son. It’s the per­fect time for fam­i­lies to enjoy the Arboretum’s pic­turesque trails. Check our web­site or Face­book page for more infor­ma­tion on this upcom­ing event at Landis.”
