• About ME

    Over 20 years working as full-charge bookkeeper,

    handling all financial matters for small businesses

    I love helping small businesses get organized with their finances and helping them maintain their books. I have been doing bookkeeping for over 25 years, working with a wide variety of businesses and busy professionals. My areas of expertise are in real estate, rental properties, architecture, construction, legal, interior design, and working with business consultants.

     

    Most of my clients have been obtained through word of mouth and CPA referrals. I care a great deal about creating and maintaining an excellent relationship with my clients. My clients, many of which are long-term, know they can trust me absolutely and depend on me and that I watch over their money as if it were my own.

     

    Having a law degree and have worked as lawyer, I bring more to the table than your average bookkeeper. I can read contracts and understand legal terminology, can write letters and speak to your clients and vendors, and work with government agencies or insurance companies on your behalf.
