    **Need help with your QuickBooks Online? Have a QuickBooks Instructor do the training. **In the past 6 year as a freelancer I have work with multiple business companies from sole proprietors, partnerships. S-corporations and C- corporations. Many different types of businesses each with their own special needs. ***As you search for an accounting expert, you are obviously looking for someone ready to hit the ground running and contribute on his or her very first day. I am that person. I am a highly motivated outsourcing accounting professional with a verifiable record of accomplishments spanning twenty years. I have trained on and mastered a variety of accounting programs, including Business Works, Soloman III, One-Write, Quicken, QuickBooks Pro Accountant Editions 1999-2015, Certified QuickBooks Online and Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor. More important than the technical skills, however, are the organizational and interpersonal skills I have had the opportunity to develop. As a business owner as well as a founder of a nonprofit organization I have acted as a liaison to clients, vendors and fellow accountants. This required me to manage multiple tasks simultaneously, to follow up on these tasks to the last detail, and to report on their progress at a moment’s notice to key stakeholders. I am ready to bring the skills and abilities I have to work for a firm that can utilize outsourcing as a viable option for employment. As a freelance bookkeeper I work with online office application Log Me In, GoToMyPC and Servers to connect to the clients accounting software. This offers my clients the advantage of having a virtual professional online for easy access and support services. I would welcome the opportunity to visit with you and discuss how I can bring my energy and attention to detail to work for you at less than the annual cost of a standard employee.
