How I can help

Small Businesses Accounting is my specialty. We all have dreams and strengths, but if day-to-day numbers is not your dream, you’re in the right place.

Some of my clients need help sorting through stacks of information and making accounting sense of it. Others need help with understanding the numbers and looking at the big picture. My goal is to help you through the accounting obstacles so you can have an accounting system that helps you run your business better.   I understand small businesses and we can talk and sort through this together.

On the personal side ...


I need to be ...


Some say they “like” to be organized. For me, I “need” to be organized. It helps me track the mass amount of information I have in business, but it’s beyond that-it is calming.


My blessing ...


I love family and my husband is a blessing. I am also a grateful parent who loves hearing my college boy play jazz and adores that my teenage girl still likes talking a lot with me.


I like to ...


I like learning about technology and I like playing with my website.

Oh, I like flavored coffee and I’m learning to like exercising.


At the core ...


I believe in purpose and I work daily to focus on this.

And most importantly, I believe in Romans 8:28.

On the business side ...

I have 25+ years accounting experience–ranging from work at a large CPA firm to a corporation to small businesses.


As a Controller/CFO, I’ve

  • Managed accounting departments.
  • Performed high level analysis like strategic planning and forecasting.
  • Worked with many non-accountants and can explain techy information in a non-techy way.

Roll up my sleeves

I’ve also “rolled up my sleeves” and

  • Dug in detail to perform accounting tasks.
  • Worked through “messy” works of previous accountants and non-accountants.
  • Worked with many different software packages and different types of businesses.


I’ve spent years learning and I still love it.

  • CPA  (and certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor).
  • Masters of Business Administration (concentration Accounting).
  • I also continue to research and learn about business software throughout the year.

Pricing and what I strive for

When we first start working together, it may take a little time to figure out “what is going on”. This is especially true if your books need clean-up.  But as we continue to work together, I strive to use fixed fees.  This helps you, the client, to have peace of mind knowing what the price is going to be each month – so there are no surprise invoices.

We talk upfront about the fees.  It’s important to make sure we both see value.
