Laura began bookkeeping over 16 years ago when she was self-employed as a consultant and sales representative for educational books. Her first project using QuickBooks was over 15 years ago. As a single home schooling mom of 4 children, all under 10 years of age, she set up and maintained her landlord’s business on QuickBooks to help defray her rent (using classes, of course!) During that time, she went back to college to study accounting and, subsequently, began working for a local bookkeeping firm. Her desire to learn and grow led her to the QuickBooks ProAdvisor program. Through this, she is certified in QuickBooks Pro/Premier, QuickBooks Enterprise, QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Point of Sale. She also completed and is maintaining the QuickBooks Advanced Certification requirements.
While developing Cents-able Bookkeeping, LLC, Laura was employed at a CPA firm as a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor professional. She set up, consulted, and trained clients to use QuickBooks in their own businesses as well as trained and supervised the in-house bookkeeping department.
As a result of her training and experience, Laura has become proficient in helping clients use QuickBooks in a way that meets two basic needs:
- 1. Tracking business activity for tax reporting purposes.
- 2. Tracking business activity for the owner(s) to be able to analyze and set future business goals.
Laura now provides QuickBooks consultation solely through her own business, Cents-able Bookkeeping, LLC and has over 750 clients nationwide who have benefited from her expertise.
