Angela Lyons

Controller

My personal motto is, “Don’t complain if you are not willing to be part of the solution.” I live by that motto and it’s what guided me to begin volunteering with organizations at my children’s schools. Those early years of PTA involvement developed into a broader passion for the education field, volunteering with nonprofit organizations that work to ensure we are doing our best for our children, who are our future.

While my role at Convergent is more “behind the scenes,” I find it very rewarding to know that the work I do supports our team so they can focus on helping organizations get to a place financially where they can make operational decisions based purely on the betterment of their mission.
