Cheryl Edington

CPA & Partner, Baer & Edington

Cheryl Edington was born and raised in Montgomery City, Missouri. Edington realized her passion and gift for math in high school and decided she wanted to become a math teacher. When math became too theoretical and after taking some very practical accounting classes, she realized accounting was going to be her future career.

Edington attended Milligan College and graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. After graduation, she passed the CPA exam and worked her way up from staff accountant to manager to partner. She is now a certified public accountant and partner with Baer & Edington. Edington says she experiences the daily satisfaction of helping her clients understand how to run their businesses and maximize their tax deductions.

Edington is involved in the Columbia community including serving as a Women's Network Steering committee member and treasurer, treasurer of Columbia Public Schools Foundation board, member of the Voluntary Action Center board, member and treasurer of the Missouri Symphony Society, and member and volunteer for the Assistance League.
