Elizabeth Thyer became an employee of Gardiner Thomsen back in 1999. She specializes in audits of municipalities and is licensed in Iowa. She is a member of ISCPA, AICPA and is on the ISCPA Governmental Auditing & Accounting Committee, which plans the ISCPA Governmental Roundtable each year, as well as selects the continuing professional education classes for governmental accounting and auditing. Elizabeth received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting from the University of Northern Iowa and works at our Charles City Office.
Elizabeth is known for her knowledge in the budget and tax increment financing area and financial reporting process. Since our county clients present financial statements on the cash basis, the modified accrual basis, and the GASB 34 full accrual basis, she is also known for assisting them with any questions they might have on the process. Elizabeth enjoys working with the clients and solving their problems. She also enjoys being at a different client every couple of weeks because the challenges are always different, which allows her to constantly learn and discover new solutions. When Elizabeth isn’t working, she can be found spending time with her husband (Calvin) and two children. She enjoys gardening, cooking and attending events her children participate in. Elizabeth is a volunteer at her kids’ schools, Sunday school teacher at Our Saviors Lutheran Church, member of various church committees, coach of Little League Softball, member of the Osage Lions Club and Leader at Clover Kids 4-H.
