We have worked with small business owners from all sectors and industries and appreciate their great feedback and strong reviews:

I tried a number of bookkeepers before I came across Anna and just wasn’t sure I’d ever find someone that could move at my pace or that I’d feel secure enough about to resist “redoing” or micromanaging the work I was actually contracting out.  I hate doing the books for both my businesses! It’s absolutely essential that I concentrate on generating business, not tracking it, so I knew I had to give it another go in my search. 

Much to my amazement…and my deepest appreciation, Anna not only was able to quickly get up and running with my existing system, but she actually has been making improvements to that system!  She’s got such a perspective of varying business models that she can contribute in a real and meaningful way not just to my accounting needs but actually to my overall operations. And to even add to that…she comes to the table with a warmth of personality and sincerity plus a natural curiosity about my business, that I feel like I have a true partner.  It’s really just lovely!

Anna Faulk, Owner

I love living in Colorado and experiencing what Colorado has to offer. I river raft, hike, bike, snowboard, cross country ski, and spend as much time on a mountain as I can. I also love to read and sit in the sun! I edit young adult novels as a hobby, working with my high school friend turned author, Casey Hays. My husband and I love to spend time with friends and family. We often travel around the country to catch up with our people. We love adventures, especially river rafting. And we love a fun happy hour!
