Bookkeeping & Business support services for Small and Home-Based Businesses in Vermont’s Addison County & Champlain Valley

After being an employed for most of my working life, I decided to strike out on my my own boss. I found there are many resources available to small (micro!) businesses, almost too many. But not a lot of help with “chores.”

I found that the back-end parts of entrepreneurship (bookkeeping and paperwork) were generally the most left to chance and, therefore, neglected. Which stands to reasonunless your business focuses on bookkeeping and paperwork, they get done “whenever.” Since these areas are where my expertise and interest lie, they are where I decide to focus.

My priority is to provide these services to you on a highly personalized, flexible basis, at a cost you can afford. I’ll give you  hones work, thoughtful opinions, complete confidentiality, and value beyond what you pay. My goal is to keep the underpinnings in place, allowing you to focus on what you do best: your business.

My experience and education cross many fields and include:

· Bachelor of Arts from Johnson State College’s External Degree Program

· Continuing Education in Accounting Skills

· Online and Self-directed studies in Accounting Principles, QuickBooks, MS Excel and Access

I have used Quicken and QuickBooks for years to manage personal and small business accounts, including monthly bill-paying and investment management for a nursing home resident.

As a community member I,

· serve as Treasurer for the Addison County Emergency Planning Committee

· volunteer at the Open Door Clinic

· am Emergency Management Coordinator for the Town of Cornwall

· am a member of the Addison County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

· served as Treasurer for the Shard Villa Board of Trustees
