There's something really great about working with entrepreneurs. Nothing beats the energy and enthusiasm you create when you pour your heart and soul into a business venture. Helping other people refine their ideas, create their story...that's where I come alive.
Here's me in a nutshell: After earning my accounting degree, I worked as a corporate controller for over 10 years and then spent another 15 years at CPA firms. With Acorn, I get to do what I do best. Take all of my knowledge and teach other entrepreneurs how to be more successful.
When it comes time to take a break, you can find me tending to my daffodils in the spring, vegetable garden in the summer, and picking apples in the fall. That's if you can separate me from the lakes I love here in Michigan.
Come share a cup of coffee with me and tell me your story.

I've been around small business owners my entire life. I grew up on a farm in South Dakota where I learned the value of hard work, and now I'm married to someone who owns a small business, so I've certainly seen firsthand the dedication and sacrifice it takes to run a successful business.


Here's me in a nutshell: Before coming to Acorn Bookkeeping, I worked for an in-house marketing agency for 12 years where I managed project workflow and accounting before deciding to stay home and raise my four daughters. I kept my head in the game by being the bookkeeper for my husband's business, and when I returned to the workforce, I found a great fit for my detail-oriented brain at Acorn.


When I'm not at work, I'm chauffeuring my kids around town to their various activities, and if I ever get a spare minute to myself, you'll find me reading a good book (or two!).


I look forward to meeting you and helping your business thrive!
