About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I am an accomplished and results driven executive leader with extensive broad-based and progressively responsible experience leading business strategy and operations. I am a practicing accountant and consultant recognized as a "tax return preparer (TRP) by the Internal Revenue Service", and certified Quickbooks ProAdvisor.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Every meeting I have gives me the opportunity to meet some new and to show them how to save time in preforming their accounting functions. This allows business owners to work on their business rather than in it.
