The dbooks company concept started in 2005 when I thought my plans were to be a solo provider. Within a matter of just a few months though, I was bookkeeping full-time; and yet still receiving a constant stream of referrals. I decided to form a team in order to continue to assist those interested in my standards of service. And now, after 9 years, we have 23 bookkeepers on staff, and we serve a client base of over 200 individuals and businesses. Prior to 2005, my first career was with EDS (Electronic Data Systems), where I worked for Ross Perot as a systems engineer, instructor, leader, strategic planner, and Y2K project manager. I left EDS in 1999 to become a foster parent, eventually adopting my three children, through foster care. I am also a QuickBooks instructor at Baruch College. In my spare time, I enjoy writing music, playing golf, camping, and hanging out with my kids.
