Rachel Dawe (Manager)
"I am a mom and a wife, which are my greatest joys in life.I fell in love with bookkeeping 6 years ago. I went to college to be a nurse, but along the way a job opportunity came that exposed me to the world of bookkeeping. Since then, bookkeeping has been my passion. I enjoy the time spent getting to know clients. I feel as though having a close relationship with each client is crucial in understanding their business and financial needs."
"I pride myself on being meticulous, listening attentively, and problem solving. I strive to help clients succeed in all aspects of business, no matter how small or large the project may be. I enjoy challenges, so when a customer has extraordinary circumstances that brings a tight deadline, I will be there to meet the need."
Angela Marks (Bookkeeper)
"I started diving into accounting when I decided to pursue my interest in numbers in 2012. I graduated with an Applied Science Degree in Accounting in 2013. I spent the majority of my years in the customer service and cash management fields before I elected to take on a role with this amazing firm. I came aboard as an administrative assistant but decided to gain more knowledge to become a bookkeeper. Becoming a bookkeeper has brought great joy to my life. I can take on the responsibility of helping small businesses achieve success. I find great pleasure working with clients to help them keep track of their finances and find solutions to any financial problems that may occur. My attention to detail has been sharpened through this process, and it has helped create great outcomes for our clients."
"I enjoy going on vacations and road trips with my family and playing mobile game apps."
Felisha Powell (Bookkeeper)
"I graduated from East-West University in June of 2005 with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration. I have worked in an accounting and administrative role since 2001. In-between accounting roles I worked as Property Manager for a non-profit that housed homeless individuals. This is where I found out that I have a passion for helping people and figuring things out. My love for numbers grew stronger as I had to manage a million-dollar budget. My goal is to use that drive and passion each day to help our cliets thrive."
"I enjoy family time, cooking and helping people in any way that I can. "

Shortly after graduation, I worked 3 years with a small accounting firm which helped manage local artist/entertainers with their personal and business finances. Over the next 7 years I worked as an Accounting Supervisor for a marketing firm which helped companies market their brands/products nationwide. To be closer to home, for the next 2 years, I worked at Turner Broadcasting System in their Advertising Revenue Department. Needing to focus more time on my family, I took a 5 year break. My world was completely devoted to my husband and 3 sons."
