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.”
