    Certified Quickbooks Pro-advisor/Bookkeeper/payroll specialist

    United States - Tests: 4

    If you are in need for an experienced bookkeeper let's talk. I have a bachelors degree in accounting and over sixteen years bookkeeping and accounting. I am an expert in QuickBooks both desk top and online. I am a certified QuickBooks pro- advisor. I have also used Xero and Wave Accounting. My goal is to help businesses analyze their business so they can make proper decisions to help their business grow. I take the "paper" out of paper work to allow you to focus on your business. Over my career I have worked for both private companies (doing full charge bookkeeping) and for CPA firms where I had a wide range of duties, including payroll, reconciling, full charge bookkeeping, accounts receivable, accounts payable, individual and business tax return preparation. I have also worked in payroll and have a high level of knowledge and experience in that area as well. I multi-task very well, I am fast and efficient, organized and detail oriented. I enjoy working with numbers (I always have excelled in Math) and I love what I do. I give great customer service and have always had very happy clients. I am looking to grow my small bookkeeping business and I am looking to take on long term clients. Small or large..., I welcome you to invite me to interview for your bookkeeping or accounting jobs. Since I am a certified Quickbooks pro-advisor, I have Quickbooks 2013 professional bookkeeper and 2014 and 15 accountants, enterprise, point of sale and I also have my own login for quickbooks online. All you need to do is invite me as your accountant user. I am fast and efficient and worth the cost. Tired of paying those fly by "bookkeepers" and having to clean up their mess. I am affordable...less than what you would pay your CPA and I am good at what I do. You won't be disappointed.
