My bookkeeping story has a sweet start. As the original “Donut Director” (aka Office Manager) at Mighty-O Donuts, I set up a variety of systems to help that small business run smoothly…down to the last vegan sprinkle.
Then in 2009, two things happened: I became a mother, and I decided I wanted to work for myself. Looking back over my work history, I realized (with some surprise) that I really and truly loved bookkeeping! I had further validation that I was on the right path after excelling (no pun intended) in the necessary accounting classes. I started my business in 2010 and have been offering all inclusive bookkeeping ever since.

Outside of Work
♥ I love adventure as much as I love order; I’ve planned trips from Thailand to the Grand Tetons. These days my son, our dog and I use our mini campervan to explore the Pacific Northwest and national parks.
♥ I get maximum satisfaction from a minimalist lifestyle. I find joy in container gardening, cooking healthy vegan meals, and reading great books (when I’m not balancing yours!).
♥ We do most commuting and errands by bike, foot, or bus from our home base near Pike Place Market, in downtown Seattle.
