Cheryden Juergensen, CPA



Cheryden Juergensen, CPA, has been with Eder, Casella & Co. since 2002, earning Partner status in 2013. An audit specialist with nearly 20 years of experience, she researches new auditing standards and implementation, and serves as the firm’s quality control partner, ensuring that the team follows proper procedures in all financial statements. “I work with our non-profits and governmental clients, but also several small businesses,” she explains.


With a Bachelor of Science degree from Trinity International University, the married mother of two, who grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, says it’s absolutely critical that all client relationships be built on integrity. “We strive for excellence in all of our work and customer service,” Juergensen states. “I try to put myself in each client’s shoes and understand their concerns, goals, etc.  There are a lot of white and black issues in accounting, of course, but there are many others that present options to consider.”


Outside of the office, Juergensen volunteers at her church, serves as the treasurer for both the McHenry Area Rotary Club and the McHenry Area Rotary Club Foundation and volunteers for the GFOA Certificate of Achievement Program’s Special Review Committee. But as for her first professional love, accounting, she recommends it highly as a course of study. “I think an accounting degree offers you more opportunities for a rewarding career than any other degree,” she contends. “Every industry and company needs an accountant, and the types of accounting positions are endless — public, private, cost, forensic, financial planner, governmental, CFO, internal auditor, you name it.”
