Former owner and lead photographer at Mac Pro FOTO. After a series of unfortunate mishaps including multiple major thefts, and an accident shortly thereafter involving multiple broken bones, I decided to concentrate on my other “seasonal” career. Don’t laugh, but I LOVE numbers, and I love helping people start a new business from the ground up! So, after leaving my 20-year career at a major tax firm, I decided to start my own and help small business owners with tasks my former "big box" company wouldn’t allow us to do for our clients, and I am currently doing just that, one client at a time! Additionally, at APEX Tax and Small Business Advisors, we want to make a difference, beyond the work we do in bookkeeping, consulting, payroll services, and taxes. We are committed to making a positive contribution to our world, our community, and to develop positive social change. We have teamed up with a non-profit organization to give back to community, and to the world in a big way! When you work with us, we will allow you to choose from a group of social purpose projects that resonate with you, resulting in donations that make a SOCIAL IMPACT to causes near and dear to your hearts and ours! Every project donation is linked to at least one, and often several, US and worldwide sustainable movements ranging from clean water, environment, ending hunger, quality education, prevention of animal cruelty, human rights, and reducing social inequalities. What are you waiting for? Come work with a team that believes in the value of small business! We pledge to help empower and inspire your small business to become successful, profitable, and sustainable. We are here to help you become leaders for the greater good in your community, locally and beyond! Always welcoming clients with a coffee & goodie bar stocked and ready. Come on in, get comfortable, let’s catch up, or get to know each other for a moment, and then get down to business!
