My clients are Innovators, Visionaries, Creators, and Risk-takers! Working with entrepreneurs is inspiring, and sustains the passion I have for what I do.
I've worked with proprietors of retail establishments, artists and musicians, freelance consultants, solo practioners in the medical and dental fields, professional services firms, niche manufacturers, e-commerce businesses, and everything in between.
No matter the personality, temperament or amount of revenue, I strive to partner with every business owner in a unique way to ensure that they have peace of mind that their financial data is accurate and they can access the data they need to make important business decisions any time they need to. Because the more their finances are organized, the better their chances of success.
