About the Company

Accounting Professional (NC #35588, WY #2635)

I specialize in providing web-based accounting solutions to small businesses and non-profit organizations. My rates are flat & fixed on a weekly or monthly basis (not hourly) and agreed to up front with my clients. I provide a dedicated and consistent accounting service to my clients. My flat rates are customized for your specific accounting and tax needs.

Leveraging my experience and “in the cloud” accounting software, I provide my clients with a higher level of accounting service and financial consulting at a value price. My clients save both time (no manual transaction entry due to advanced accounting software) and money (reduced accounting costs and no unexpected accountant bills). Business owners and directors enjoy mobile access to their accounting, as well as peace of mind through enhanced controls and continuity in the accounting function as employees and board members come and go.
Service Description
I am a CPA (licensed in WY and NC) and offer accounting services to individuals and businesses. I am a strong proponent of small businesses, and my goal is to help them and their owners, reduce accounting overhead costs, minimize their tax liabilities (within legal limits), and strengthen their banking relationships by effectively communicating with their bankers. I believe that the success and growth of local small businesses strengthens the character and longevity of the communities in which we live.
I am passionate about accounting, and enjoy reading about accounting industry developments and tax law changes. If you do not enjoy such things - leave the accounting and tax returns to me! I stay up to date on all changes through various professional resources, and I love what I do.

I have over 18 years of experience in accounting and finance. I have a Bachelors of Science in Commerce with a primary concentration in finance from the University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce (consistently rated in the top five undergraduate business schools in the country), numerous graduate level accounting classes, and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants ("AICPA").
