      TESTIMONIALS

       

      I have worked with Carmelle since early 2014 and is she a great bookkeeper. She is highly organized, has attention to detail, is very thorough, works efficiently and completes her assignments in a timely fashion. I highly recommend her.

      Carmelle is 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 her is that she pays a lot of attention to all the small details. She always emails 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

      Freelance Bookkeeper

      Feb 1999 – Present

      My experience with accounting started in my 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.
