    Carmelle is a very dedicated, hard-working and deadline focussed. She is easy to reach, responds quickly and is detailed about her work. It's a pleasure to work with her.

    I hired Carmelle at the beginning of 2012 to take care of my small business bookkeeping, she is very professional in her work and what I really like about Carmelle is that she pays a lot of attentions of all the small details, she always email me if she is missing documents or if she has questions for me. I would definitely recommend Carmelle if you need a trustful person with a nice personality to take care of your small business bookkeeping.

  • Owner Bio

    Bookkeeper 

    Feb 1999 – Present

    My experience with accounting started in my very first full time, permanent job and then after years of exploring other areas, I found myself back in accounting with a desire to learn all the aspects of the accounting cycle, not just accounts receivable and accounts payable. That’s what led me to do bookkeeping for small businesses. Also because I have always enjoyed variety as well as learning.
