"BerryDunn’s guidance through the unprecedented past 15 months has been so beneficial to MCCS. It would have been difficult without this partnership. I was in this position for less than a year when the pandemic hit. We needed to navigate CARES Act regulations and HEERF funds, and Sarah Belliveau and Emily Parker were a great resource, giving me comfort that I was on the right track."
