MEET STEPHANIE

How many people do you know that look at numbers and think, “Yes! This is great! I can see a story here.”

Chances are, I’m the first one.

When I see numbers, I see meaning. Small businesses are an extension of people’s personal lives. When I get to help my clients with their small businesses, it’s impactful to them on a personal level.

As one of those people that loves crunching numbers, I enjoy helping my clients find meaning in theirs, whether through bookkeeping, tax preparation or simple conversation. Small businesses are more than just businesses – they’re an extension and reflection of people’s personal lives and values. Helping my clients manage and understand their numbers truly is impactful to them on a deeper, more personal level than you’d think.

It’s funny – I never aspired to be an accountant but rather fell into it when my father-in-law introduced me to his income tax and real estate business back in 2007. I’d always been business savvy, and he saw how much I loved working with people. When my husband decided to take his career in a different direction from the family business, I stepped up and have never looked back.

From part-time freelancers to seasoned entrepreneurs, Chicagoans to people as far away as Japan and Germany, families to small businesses, I’ve had the pleasure of working with some incredible people over the last decade. I’ve loved watching clients take the plunge from the 9 to 5 grind to small business ownership and maximizing the time they get to spend doing what they do best. Helping my clients grow, thrive and succeed reminds me of how much I love what I do and energizes me to find ways I can support them even more.

I’ll be more than happy to have a chat with you about anything from bookkeeping and tax prep for your business to your personal goals. If you’re interested in learning more about what I can do to help, shoot me a message. I can’t wait to learn more about you, too.
