Well, I put together financial information that helps small business owners make better decisions. Recently, I’ve been streamlining large batches of data so it can be brought into Quicken in a few seconds. I recently passed an A-133 audit, I clean financial info, and I get all my clients’ financial data entered and processed in plenty of time for them to complete their returns. I love finding ways to save clients’ money and I love ensuring that my clients’ accounts receivables are paid on time. I have an MBA in finance from University of Toledo, a BBA from St. Mary’s in Finance, and twenty years’ experience in the banking industry. I am also a QuickBooks Certified Accountant for desktop and Online products. Just before founding BudgetEase, I worked at the Cleveland Clinic Innovation Center commercializing cardiovascular technologies.

I provide accounting oversight to entrepreneurs that guarantees their financial records are correct. I coach start- up companies on the importance of financial reporting, provide bookkeeping training and offer other analytical services. I am a CPA with a BS in Accounting from Cleveland State University. I have 30 years of experience in accounting, where I have worked in public accounting, non-profit organizations, and multinational corporations. Each position has provided me with opportunities to solve problems. I am also certified in QuickBooks Online and Desktop. I enjoy building relationships with new clients. The variety of clients we deal with bring on many different types of tasks, so there is never a boring day! I love sharing my knowledge of bookkeeping with clients and teaching them how to do it on their own. Seeing a client's relief after working with them is so gratifying.

I am responsible for bookkeeping, managing payrolls, managing account receivables, and overseeing cash. I have a BS in industrial management from Purdue, with a double major in Computer Science and Accounting. After earning my CPA, I became an auditor for Deloitte-Touche before moving on to be senior accountant for WGN Radio in Chicago. After getting married, I moved to Cleveland and started working as a tax accountant for our family’s real estate business. I am driven by the sense of accomplishment when I help others achieve their goals. I myself have set many goals in both my personal and professional life. That is why I am so excited to be working for a company like BudgetEase. I am excited to be working with new clients, learning about the industries they work in, and solving their problems.

I provide multiple services for clients. I prepare invoices, input payroll, fill out government forms, send expenses reports, and compile journal entries for the general ledger. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in IT and Business. In the corporate world, I took over and reduced expenses in various target departments. I did cost accounting on power generation, which is complicated, highly technical, and involves a great deal of knowledge about engineering. During my time working with power generation I reduced time for service requests through restructuring. I also spent time working with non-profit organizations. Before working at BudgetEase, I spent six years managing a church’s operations, which mostly included financial maintenance and bookkeeping. Bookkeeping can be very complicated. With time, organization, and the right processes bookkeeping becomes solvable. Like a puzzle. I love establishing efficient accounting systems for my clients and helping them put the pieces together.
“What is the point of racing to a red light?”
In addition to basic bookkeeping services, I help clients identify issues with their books and resolve their bookkeeping problems. I earned my MBA at UCLA and a BS in Biology at Duke University. My work experience includes: project management for a large international food company, buying for a national department store chain, and consulting for a national insurance company. I have also volunteered my time as a treasurer for several community nonprofit organizations. I was recently in banking before joining BudgetEase. My most current project involves helping a client identify issues with their bookkeeping set up, cleaning up the associated accounts, processing backlogged invoices and bills, and providing financial summaries so our client could determine job profitability on their projects. BudgetEase allows me the opportunity to work with new clients every day. I am driven by the great satisfaction I get from helping clients feel comfortable with their finances.

I am a graduate of Case Western with a Masters in Accounting. Recently, I've had the pleasure of working with a senior center and a baroque orchestra. I help with their invoices, billing, and payroll. Working with these companies is both enjoyable and rewarding. Before joining BudgetEase, I was a researcher in Molecular Biology at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Center and I have sold high end vacuum cleaners door to door. Since joining BudgetEase I have had the opportunity to work with diverse companies, meet different people, and straighten out financial problems. I love getting the hands on experience BudgetEase provides and I am excited about what the future holds.
