After living in Glenview, Illinois for 36 years, we sold our home and most of our belongings in October, 2016 and have been travelling since then. Currently traveling between Ecuador, Tucson and any off the beaten path destination that is remotely reasonable, I continue to service two clients in the Chicago area. The first is a behavioral services not-for-profit for whom I produce monthly financial statements and special projects; the second is a small for-profit family owned corporation that makes crepes at local farmers markets, sourcing ingredients from local farmers and suppliers.
In 2013 and early 2014, I consulted at Jewish Vocational Services to assist in preparation for the annual audit procedures.
Myrna J. Newman was Chief Financial Officer and Secretary of Professional Diversity Network (f/k/a iHispano.com) from February 2012 until July 2013. During that time I completed an IPO for the Company as well as establishment of GAAP accounting for the LLC and Corporation. Prior to joining PDN, I served as interim Chief Financial Officer for Jewish Vocational Services of Chicago from 2009 to 2010. From 2008 to 2009, I was Corporate Controller for Atlas Material Testing L.L.C., a manufacturer of weathering and material testing solutions. I served as Controller, Chief Accounting Officer and Principal Financial Officer of Motient Corporation, a wireless data communications network from April 2003 until June 2007. Prior to that, Myrna J. Newman was Vice President of Finance at Heads and Threads International LLC, an importer and distributor of metal fasteners. Myrna J. Newman is a Certified Public Accountant and received an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business and her B.S. in Accountancy from DePaul University.
