I am a self-employed accountant. I specialize in small businesses and individuals needing assistance with their day to day bookkeeping and payroll needs. I chose to be self-employed a couple years ago when the business that I was working for sold their company. I was looking for a career that would allow me to spend more time with my family and felt that working on my own would be a good fit for me and my family. I am happy to say that I enjoy creating my own schedule, being more involved in the community by serving on a couple boards and still allowing myself the necessary time to focus on my clients and their needs.
