Shirley “Toni” McCord, CPA, APAC
Since Shirley “Toni” McCord started her accounting career in 1988, she has become the sole owner of Shirley “Toni” McCord, CPA, APAC, a Professional Accounting Corporation. The firm, which still serves clients of the original owner, is currently an all-woman team of accounting professionals dedicated to assisting individuals and small-to-medium size businesses throughout the Greater New Orleans region.
31 years of experience have provided comprehensive knowledge in areas from tax planning and return preparation to tax problems resolution and IRS representation. They get to know their clients’ needs, challenges and desires, and apply smart strategies to help them achieve their personal and professional goals. The McCord team delivers national expertise with an exceptional, boutique experience.
And McCord doesn’t stop at challenging norms with just her clients—she also works to challenge the idea that traditional CPA firms are “high-stress sweat shop environments”. McCord believes no one should have to choose between a great family life and a wonderful career. The firm cultivates an environment that recognizes a positive work ethic, and fosters support and flexibility for their employees.
The McCord firm also supports the community—firstly, through helping small and medium businesses thrive financially, and secondly through membership in professional organizations, including the Louisiana Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
