Young CPA recognized for volunteer and financial literacy activities


Danielle Supkis Cheek, president of D. Supkis Cheek PLLC in Houston and an adjunct professor at Rice University, received the Outstanding Young CPA Award for her volunteer activities within the profession and her commitment to promoting financial literacy in her community.

The award recognizes a CPA under age 40 who demonstrates commitment to the accounting profession through successful practices, involvement, and contributions. The award was established in honor of Maximo Mukelabai, a member of the inaugural class of the AICPA Leadership Academy and the youngest chair of the North Carolina Association of CPAs board of directors. He died at age 36.

Supkis Cheek has served as a member of the AICPA GenNext Task Force, Women's Initiatives Executive Committee Champions Task Force, and the Private Companies Practice Section Technical Issues Committee. She promotes financial literacy in her community by working with The Women's Resource of Greater Houston and the entrepreneurship accelerator programs at Rice University, the Texas Medical Center, and the University of Houston.
