“Hire Her! You will be pleased! Stacy is a dream come true, honestly. I hired another bookkeeper prior to Stacy, who was much more expensive and had a quirky bookkeeping style. We parted ways. Stacy is the Bookkeeper extrodinaire! Really. She loaded on some QB software that makes sharing docs a breeze. She picks up and delivers everything. We have had a couple of meetings in which she sized up the job and got to work. (I was having long, monthly meetings with the previous bookkeeper). Everything gets done efficiently and in a timely manner. I am not involved! As an added bonus, she has experience in insurance billing, and has been able to take on the bookkeeping piece of it. None of the other bookkeepers I spoke to were willing to touch it. It is such peace of mind for me to have this job off my desk and handled expertly, so I can turn my attention to my work.”
“Stacy does a great job and meets or exceeds my expectations every time I use her services. She really knows what she’s doing and does a great job! “
“We at Radon Removal Systems, Inc. have hired Stacy as a Quickbooks consultant. RRS is a family owned and run small business with a small budget. Stacy has been a great benefit to our business. Her in depth knowledge of the QB program has helped us to train employess, better organize and operate our business and save money! I would recommend “The Back Office Expert” to anyone in need of this service”
