Nancy McClelland, CPA, MAFM

The Dancing Accountant

Nancy is a passionate believer that personal relationships, creative solutions, and reliable technology drive small business success – especially in our accounting industry. With her fully-remote yet hyper-local firm The Dancing Accountant, CPA Nancy McClelland has been on a 22+ year mission to provide affordable, personal, quality accounting and advisory services to independent business owners – as well as education and consulting for the professionals who serve them. Known for her fun, personal and direct engagement, it’s no surprise she insists that the future of accounting is built on personal relationships. Named one of the Top 100 ProAdvisors by Insightful Accountant, as well as one of Ignition’s Top 50 Women in Accounting, she writes an award-winning blog with insights and resources for small businesses and accounting professionals, and is a sought-after interviewee and speaker. She is a member of three different dance troupes, and can be found on Chicago stages entertaining audiences that often include her clients – though winters find her working remotely in the digital nomad paradise of Mérida, México.
