Wanda has always enjoyed math and especially algebra. Instead of going into teaching, her family suggested she try accounting and it was an immediate fit. She has been with Sykes & Company, P.A. since its inception and became a shareholder in 1985. Wanda works primarily in tax—preparing and reviewing tax returns for independent pharmacies.
In addition to the analytical side of her job, Wanda enjoys the opportunities she has to grow with the firm. She appreciates the way the firm is innovative and stays on the cutting edge of technology and accounting practice. Wanda is known for being easygoing and friendly with her clients. She likes helping clients solve problems and often works with internal accounting personnel to keep bookkeeping running smoothly. Clients understand that they can call her for a variety of needs.
Wanda received her B.S. in Business Administration degree with a concentration in accounting from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants.
When she’s not at work, she’s often involved with Edenton Baptist Church where she has served as a deacon, treasurer, choir member, Sunday school teacher and serves on various other committees. She also enjoys attending sporting events, reading and spending time with family.
