Who we are
Legg Consulting Group focuses on helping businesses solve complex problems.
Cynthia has two decades of experience strategizing with businesses and individuals to help them solve problems, optimize profits, and achieve their vision. Her extensive expertise encompasses high-level tax planning and compliance for corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, sole proprietors, high-net worth individuals, estates, and trusts. Additionally, she provides financial and business consulting services offering solution driven strategies. Her expertise crosses multiple industries including construction, real estate development and management, healthcare, retail, hospitality, and professional services.
After starting her career in government contracting, she worked as a financial analyst for Fauquier Hospital where she was responsible for creating and implementing budgets across all departments. However, always looking for the next challenge, Cynthia ultimately ended up thriving on the demands and challenges of public accounting by joining PBMares, LLP, in 2001, a regional CPA firm and top 100 firm nationwide. As a partner, Cynthia dedicated fifteen years to helping the individuals and businesses she served with tax compliance, planning, and financial consulting.
In 2012 and 2013, she was a recipient of the Virginia Business Magazine’s Super CPA for Estate Planning and Trusts. Cynthia served on PBMares, LLP’s internal tax committee, investment committee, and internal tax inspection committee. In addition, she was a lead instructor for several internal training programs.
Cynthia “retired” from the typical demands of public accounting in 2016 and was ready for her next endeavor where she could achieve a greater long-term impact for her clients and community. In January 2017, she launched Legg Consulting Group where she is dedicated to helping businesses achieve financial success from a management perspective by offering CFO and management consulting services.
She graduated from Strayer University in 1999, summa cum laude and passed the Certified Public Accountant examination the same year. Her successful career unfolded from there.
Cynthia has a passion for giving back to the community where she has resided for many years, having served on numerous nonprofit boards. Some of her more recent board positions include the Fauquier Family Shelter, Piedmont Community Foundation, and Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce. She has also contributed her time to the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants financial literacy program and given seminars to local individuals and business owners on financial well being. She is now excited to be one of the charter board members of Be the Change Foundation, empowering and strengthening women entrepreneurs and building a stronger community.
A strong financial team
Through her extensive experience, Cynthia observed that many businesses had very similar problems—they lacked financial insight, expertise, and leadership on their management team. To provide the best opportunity for success, a business needs a strong financial team that supports the CEO.
Legg Consulting Group’s goal is to provide you and your business with a solid financial framework and help guide you through challenges and growth, with the larger goal of helping you reach increased success.
We are committed to helping you achieve your vision, improve your bottom line, and secure success efficiently and strategically. Our dedication to make a more positive impact on the lives of others and the community is what drives us.
