Speaking the Language

 

 

When finances find you frustrated, the language of numbers can seem, well, harsh. As a certified public accountant with more than 20 years experience, I understand the language of numbers. As a small-business owner, I speak the language of small business. That adds up to one simple fact: I can translate.

The Bottom Line

You'll not only know your bottom-line, you'll know why it is what it is.

Digging Beneath the Bottom Line

I started my own professional accounting business with a mission to help others make things happen. I enjoy working with fellow small business-owners directly, as a partner, to offer valuable financial advice beyond just the basic tax services other CPAs might offer.

In today's business world, data is becoming increasingly crucial - and complex. Regular training keeps my skills sharp. With up-to-date understanding, this essential information can be transformed into informed decisions.

Crunching Numbers

Owning a small business can be challenging - especially in terms of the finances. You've got a lot on your mind. I can subtract a few frustrations by providing you with personalized attention and responsive service that accommodates your calendar.

Before you get worked up, look me up - and we can sit down together to figure out how I can best help you and your business.
