Financial Management Simplified
Kingston, NY, Ulster
I provide cloud-based accounting and bookkeeping services to small Not-for-Profits and small businesses. I am happy to work with new organizations/businesses to help design an accounting system, or I can help upgrade an existing system to meet current needs. I enjoy catch-up or "clean-up" projects as well. Finally, if all is set up and running smoothly, I can provide regular bookkeeping/accounting services, or just troubleshoot when issues/questions arise. I have a Certificate in Not-for-Profit Accounting from New York University and in a previous life was the Executive Director of a small non-profit.

Financial Management Simplified
What kind of accounting services do you provide?
I work with small non-profits, who cannot afford their own Finance Director, and Sole Proprietors, who need some help with their books. I can set up an accounting system or tweak and existing one to make it work better. If the volume of activity is small, I can do the actual bookkeeping on a monthly basis, or if it is larger, I can supervise the regular bookkeeping staff on a quarterly basis to keep things running smoothly. I can provide financial reports, help develop budgets, and work with your CPA on your tax returns. (I do not do tax preparation myself.)
Why is it so important for businesses to hire a great accountant?
Your business or organization accounting system is its financial backbone. It is incredibly helpful to have a well-designed accounting system to make keeping track of your money easy. It is also really important to keep the books up-to-date, so a good system and regular attention to it are a great investment.
What do you love most about your job?
Getting to know people, the nature of their businesses and organizations, and figuring out how to make their life a little bit easier by making it easier to keep their finances well-organized and clear.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I love organizing things and setting up systems to keep them organized. I like the flexibility of making my own ours. I like variety.
Why should our clients choose you?
I am conscientious and have high integrity, but am also fun, easy to work with, and good at explaining accounting in ways that everyone can understand.
