Nina Chmura, CPA, Partner, Team Leader of Outsourced Accounting Services, Withum

Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in:

I began my career in 2003, after graduating from Boston University at a small accounting firm in Massachusetts. After one busy season I realized I wanted to be closer to my family in NJ, moved, and began my career at Withum.

What is your current position?

I am currently the team leader of the OASys (Outsourced Accounting Systems and Services) team. We are approximately 40 team members in 5 offices. We provide back office accounting support to our clients from accounts receivable/payable clerks to controller and CFO level services utilizing cloud technologies.

Why did you choose the field/profession you are in today?

My parents were business owners and I always knew I wanted to go to business school, but I was not sure in what area I wanted to concentrate. I went to a presentation in college that spoke about the opportunities in accounting and was drawn to the fact that every business in every industry needs accountants. To this day, I enjoy working with many different clients and businesses on any given day.

How do you manage the work/life balance?

2020 has been a challenging year in managing work/life balance as the lines have blurred with work and school primarily being from home. I manage balance with a lot of help from my family and the ability to be flexible on a day to day basis. I realize I can’t always be everything to everyone but I try to be present where I am. I make sure I don’t only prioritize being at the big things but also being focused and attentive during the day to day with my family.
