Zoey Provenzano, CPA, was recently promoted to Manager. Let’s learn about Zoey and her perspective on her career, giving back to the community, and what it takes to be successful.  

What are your roles in the firm?

As a member of the Consulting Service Line, I have many different roles in the firm, working with businesses, conducting compilations and reviews, and helping with tax returns. I work with a lot of nonprofit and construction clients and also do specialized work with ESOPs and payroll tax returns. I am also a QuickBooks Online and Desktop ProAdvisor, and I train clients and staff as needed on those programs.

Describe your career path.

During my time at the University of Michigan, I did two internships with PwC in Grand Rapids. After graduating with a bachelor’s and master’s, I spent the summer during the pandemic studying and taking the CPA exams. Shortly after, I joined PwC full-time as an auditor, but I wanted to expand my impact to multiple clients and businesses. That’s when I found Yeo & Yeo. In September 2021, I joined the firm’s Consulting Service Line, and I have enjoyed the variety of projects and working with different clients every day.

Are there any causes or charitable organizations you are passionate about and actively support? Why are they important to you?

I enjoy being involved in the Midland community. My mom is the conductor of the Midland Community Orchestra, which provides free concerts, and I regularly volunteer and give back to the group. I also serve on the board of Midland Recyclers because I value sustainability and creating a healthier planet for future generations.

What’s the biggest factor that has helped you be successful?

There are a few mottos I live by – be authentically yourself, stay organized, take lots of notes (and reference them later), continuously challenge yourself and keep learning, and stay positive even when there is a lot to do. I am a triplet with two awesome sisters, so I’ve always had some friendly competition my whole life. My siblings have been my biggest supporters and have pushed me to achieve my goals.

What makes being an accountant fun? 

You can help your clients be successful in their businesses, which helps our local communities thrive and grow. In addition, you get to meet a lot of great people!

What are your hobbies or interests outside of accounting?

  • Singing: I have been in choirs throughout middle school, high school, and college. I currently sing in the Chorale at the Midland Center for the Arts. I’ve been able to perform with the Midland Symphony Orchestra for Mozart’s Requiem and with Broadway stars. It is great to be able to sing in my community!
  • Attending Broadway and Broadway National Tour shows: At this point, I’ve seen 15 different shows and will be adding four more in the upcoming year! My favorites so far are Jersey Boys, Beetlejuice, and Wicked.

What are some of the ways you like to continually learn and grow?

I read a lot of books, typically nonfiction or biographies. I also do plenty of CPE and stay up on the trends in business by being active on LinkedIn and doing free LinkedIn Learning courses.
