Shannon N. Sohl, CPA, PhD, has been with CGS since 2006. Prior to beginning a career in the public sector, she focused on audits, as well as financial processes and systems improvements in the private sector. As a CGS Senior Research Specialist, her areas of expertise include public finance, government structure, as well as specialized public policy and public administration research such as organizational assessments and housing studies. Her most recent accomplishment includes work on leading the development of the first ever  U.S. Governmental GAAP Taxonomy (UGGT).

The most important things Shannon would like people to know about CGS are: 1. The integrity, energy, innovation and expertise of CGS' staff enables us to create a rich experience for others we engage with and serve; and  2. CGS' relationship with NIU provides us with an advantageous opportunity to influence and glean from a wealth of talent.

Shannon said she is "energized by coffee and people. I absolutely love tackling complex issues - but not without coffee and other problem-solving geeks."
