Accounts Receivable Manager at Carollo Engineers
Through the 1 Hour CFO, Sandra “Mitzi” Giani Kipnes combines her CPA, CMA, MBA and Master of Accountancy and Information Systems to provide small- and medium-sized businesses with accounting and strategy expertise. She enjoys training and coaching her clients how to use technology to make accounting easy and understandable.
Her inspirational health company Imagine 120 focuses on her enthusiasm for the changing nutritional, bio-tech and mindset environment around our ability to live to a fully-functioning 120 years. Imagine 120 partners with Univera, a 35-year-old Korean company that has scientifically proven the power of plants and has a mission to bring the best of nature to humankind. Often Sandra speaks to groups about how nutritional supplements, yoga and zeal for life saved her from the doctor’s “2 to 6 month death sentence.”
In addition, Sandra has been the keynote speaker at Arizona State University’s Ethics Club, Music Travel & Love, and the Institute of Management Accountants. She has shown community leadership since she was in her early teens in Green Bay, volunteering at local hospitals as a candy striper and at YMCA Camp Wabansi as a junior camp counselor. Her commitment to community has continued, including over 10 years of service on the Arizona State University MBA Alumni Board, President of Graduate Women in Business and President of Carollo Toastmasters club. She was a 2014 AWREY Award recipient (American Riviera Woman Entrepreneur of The Year). One of Sandra’s most cherished moments was her nomination for Arizona State University’s John Teets’ Outstanding Teacher Award.
