How I got started in Finances? I started in 2002 working for a major hotel chain as Night Auditor. This sparked my interest in financial reporting. Running daily reports for the managers cultivated a desire to understand the reports generated and to make sure they were accurate.
I started my own gift basket business a few years later and started using QuickBooks. Years later, I worked for the Northern Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce where I worked more in depth with QuickBooks. Later, I became QuickBooks Online Certified. I took tax preparation classes for my own benefit -- my husband and I were empty nesters and owed taxes for the very first time! I needed to know why!
I soon found a mentor who really assisted in sharpening my skills in tax preparation.
The years have taken me from startup businesses, non-profit organizations to training others in QuickBooks!
It is an amazing journey I am on!
