About UsTrusted advisors focused on relationships to partner in success.
I have 30 years experience in this space. In 2009 I founded Automated Accounting Services (AAS) to provide small-business owners an outsourced bookkeeping and payroll solution and to provide advisory services. My firm is cloud based which allows my clients to access their financial data virtually anywhere and I provide them insight to keep their business running successfully.
A “techie” at heart, I strive to educate myself with the most efficient processes and tools available. One of the main tools I use is QuickBooks Online. I have been using QuickBooks software since 1999 I became a Certified ProAdvisor in 2006 and became an Advanced Certified ProAdvisor in 2014 and recertify as required every year. Additionally, I’ve earned certification for all applications I use in my work.
Prior to starting AAS, I was an accounting-software consultant at Bright Alternatives, LLC. And, previous to that I served as a Controller and Staff Accountant — employed by various small-business corporations. This relevant experience helps me closely relate to my clients, and inspires my passion for empowering small-business owners.
I live in the beautiful North-Shore of Massachusetts with my husband John and my two dogs Sparky and Luna. I have raised two wonderful sons who continue to delight me. In addition to providing exceptional value to my clients, I enjoy walks with my pups, gardening, hiking and boating in the Merrimack River and seacoast with John and friends.
I am on a mission to help small business succeed by bringing knowledge, passion, sincerity honesty and diligence to the table. Contact me today to see what we can achieve together.
