About this pro
My goal as your bookkeeper is to make sure you feel you are getting the support you need and the motivation you desire, within the budget you set. You can call me your personal bookkeeper, your business cheerleader, or even your sidekick! I am here to help you spend less time on bookkeeping, so you can spend more time in the other things you want to do with your life. That is why our logo is Lighthouse Ledgers - "Balanced Books, Balanced Life" I love helping businesses succeed! I chose a lighthouse as my brand because I feel it is imperative that business owners understand how important strong financial books are for informative business decisions. Bookkeeping is not just a livelihood, it is a personal passion. I love watching books come together. It is similar to the joy of putting together that last piece in a jigsaw puzzle and seeing the whole picture come alive.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We try to meet our client's budget goals. Our standard rates are available on our website, but we are always open for negotiation. If our rates are too high for a small business starting out, we may adjust the frequency of service to help meet their goals. If we have a client that needs a standard fixed price, we will negotiate that with them as well. Every business is different!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When establishing a new bookkeeper/client relationship, it is important to learn as much about my client's needs as possible. Our first step is to schedule a free consultation to go over the specific business needs and determine if we are a good fit. It is helpful if the client is able to provide as much information as possible about their business, so we will also forward a new client questionnaire for them to fill out if they are able. Once we have a good understanding of what is needed, we will forward the client the initial Engagement Letter detailing the services that we would be providing along with the first invoice at the agreed upon amount. Upon receipt of the Letter of Engagement and initial payment or deposit, we jump right in to take care of our client's needs!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I (Christina) have a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting as well as several years in the accounting field.
