Business Interview During COVID-19 Pandemic: Nancy E. Kelly of DavisKelly CPAs
Written interviews with local business owners have been organized and written by members of the RVMS Marketing Committee. We will continue to share these interviews frequently as part of a series to share how best to support local businesses in Roslindale during this challenging time.
Many businesses and nonprofits are trying to figure out how their operations will survive during and after the COVID-19 outbreak. Nancy E. Kelly, co-managing partner of DavisKelly CPAs had a teleconference with 40 of her clients April 2 to reassure them.
“I just wanted to make sure that they know that we are here to help them in any way,” Kelly said.
DavisKelly is a full-service public accounting and business consulting firm with offices in Roslindale Square on 4238 Washington Street and in New York City. It is also a woman and minority-owned business that has catered to the nonprofit community for 25 years. Some of their clients include On The Rise, Paige Academy, and the Social Innovation Forum.
Kelly told her teleconference attendees that her firm was offering discounted services to all clients. The company provides support for applying for loans and government funding. It also has expertise as a fiscal first responder. Kelly provided disaster relief support for businesses after September 11 and Hurricane Sandy in New York. Prior to becoming a CPA, Kelly was an operating room nurse for ten years, which gives her a unique perspective on the current health crisis.
“So, I understand first-hand the many complex issues facing organizations right now,” Kelly said.
DavisKelly is one of the few businesses in Roslindale still open during normal business hours because it provides essential financial services. However, Kelly would prefer that people call or email the office first to make an appointment so they can speak to the right person for their immediate needs. If you would like to meet with any of them, they can set up a video conference or a conference call to conduct business.
“We’re here and available,” Kelly said. “People are struggling right now, but we can help people out here.”
