After 20 years in the accounting field, I grew frustrated watching firms take on more work than they could handle at the expense of the clients. Unnecessary extensions were being filed leaving clients in limbo for many months. Service and attention began to be based on who was the biggest client or who complained the most. The most basic assistance became a billable hour. It became obvious to me, clients really only want one thing: great service delivered on time with integrity at a reasonable, upfront price.
I have a vast background with over 20 years of bookkeeping, 13 years of tax preparation and 5 years of controller experience. I have worked in public accounting, government, and private industry. I have trained hundreds of novice accountants, teaching them in a manner they can understand, encouraging them and motivating them to succeed. I pride myself with the ability to learn and understand each clients’ needs and to explain their accounting in a down to earth manner.
What makes Integrity Accounting different? I will partner with you to provide service like you have never experienced before. You will be offered billing and service options that are customized to meet your needs. Support will be part of this package. There are no surprises when you get the bill.

I will never be too busy for you because I turn away work when I am at capacity to ensure the integrity of our service is not compromised. I am not your typical accountant, I am more like your devoted CPA companion.
I am often asked why I include dogs in my branding. Not only are dogs an adorable way to pass on boring accounting and tax information, they provide a comfort and warmness that I want you to feel when you come to Integrity Accounting. Dogs also possess several traits I aspire to .
Dogs are devoted companions that are always attentive. When I take you on as a client, I am not just your CPA, I am your devoted companion. I will be there for you when you need me. Rarely does a client of mine wait for a reply to an email or have a call go unanswered. My clients are generally shocked by the attention they receive.
Dogs are compassionate, unconditional and nonjudgmental. I know everyone has different circumstances and my goal is to help you regardless of your situation. I want you to feel comfortable and free to ask me any and all questions without fear of judgment or large fees. I want you to come to me as you are. I have traded in business suits and secretaries for dog t-shirts, good service and reasonable prices.
Dogs operate with Integrity and do not have hidden agendas. They are loyal, pack animals. When you hire me, you are inviting me into your pack. Your success becomes key to my success. I will work to help you reach your goals and will protect you by making sure you are aware of tax laws and risks.
These characters are not just any dogs, they are cartoon versions of my own dogs. The Jack Russell first used in our advertising was Eddie, we lost him during Integrity's first tax season. He was not replaced, but supplemented by our goldendoodle, Winnie. I hope the use of my furry friends adds some fun to your virtual experience.
