A Note from Gwen

Before starting my own CPA practice, I worked for several large firms. I never really fit in because I wanted to take care of the little guy. I wanted to spend more time answering their questions and helping them get their financial house in order without nickel-and-diming them. That wasn’t possible with big firms because you can’t make big money by spending extra time with the little guy. I started my own firm because I wanted to be a resource for small businesses that weren’t being served by larger firms. I also wanted to be an affordable small business accountant so more companies could have access to top-notch accounting, tax planning, and profitability services. Today, I take the same approach as I always have. Give each client the time they need and deserve. Build a relationship. Provide valuable but affordable services. Help small business owners understand their financial data so they can grow and thrive. The most rewarding part of my job is when everything comes together and makes sense for the client. They’re able to connect the dots between a clear financial picture and business success. They just get it. I hope you’ll give me the opportunity to do the same for you.
