Chyla Graham is a certified public accountant with over ten years of experience helping nonprofit organizations realign and thrive. Chyla’s start as an Audit Manager at a religious organization helped her see how important it is to synchronize an organization’s spending and its mission. She honed her teaching abilities there, training her staff in financial literacy and accounting principles. Next, she took her skills to The SEED School of Miami, Florida, where, as the Director of Finance at SEED, Chyla prepared audits, managed budgets across departments and continued to provide staff training in financial literacy. 

Chyla wanted to reach even more organizations and effect change more broadly. That’s when Chyla started her company, CNRG Accounting Advisory, to empower more nonprofit organizations. To date, she has secured over $2 million in funding for several organizations and helped many more streamline to better serve their communities. 

Chyla credits flying trapeze for keeping her physically and mentally strong, and reminding her that you can’t succeed in life alone. Every trapeze artist needs someone to be “on line” holding the ropes. Chyla likes that metaphor for trapeze and for business, and her greatest pride is being “on line” for her clients.
