A Few Words About Us

  • Most of us think it's all about the numbers. we're different.

    Numbers only tell part of the story - and while we may be experts at providing financial, strategic, organizational and operational solutions, we make it our mission to get to know your story. To us, that's the only way to understand your unique needs and the only way to fulfill our role as your long-term, trusted adviser and business partner. 

    We're passionate about what we do. Over the years, our growth has afforded us the opportunity to broaden the scope of resources available to our clients. While our work may not be as exciting to some as, say, skydiving, we make sure you are thrilled with the results we deliver. Because our firm is relatively small, you benefit by getting personalized, quality service that is beyond comparison.

    Our History

    Clendenin Bird & Company, PC was founded in Modesto, in California’s Central Valley, by Gerald “Jerry” Clendenin and Constance Connie Bird and has been operating since 1977. 

    Our aim then, as it is now, was to provide quality service associated with large national firms with the personal client relationships expected of a small, local firm. In 2009, Cathy Gatewood, EA, and Michelle Gallagher, CPA, were added as additional partners and have since become sole owners of the company.

    Today our staff includes Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents with the IRS, staff accountants and bookkeepers with clients throughout California and beyond.

    Our firm is a member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the California Society of CPAs.
