I have over 10 years bookkeeping experience and am a life long artist myself. I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a focus on Fine arts and Art history. I have great respect and love for all forms of art, writing, and creative expression.
I discovered my love of balancing the books after I graduated college in 2004. I used my perfectionist mentality for my artwork and applied it to accounting and bookkeeping over the last 10 years! I am a Quickbooks Pro Adviser, Bill.com Expert and Hubdoc certified. I am currently an ICBUSA student and Bookkeeper Business Academy Graduate.
My goal is to help artists with their business’ financial health as well as their everyday bookkeeping tasks. I want to help artists focus on their masterpeices, their novels, their clients and fans while I handle the numbers. As artists, most of us have to hold down full time jobs in addition to our artistic passion, with a dream of making money doing what we LOVE. I’m finally branching off onto my own entrepreneurial journey and am ready to help other artists with theirs.
I find great inspiration from those around me, including my sister and self-published author, Lisa Ladew. She has coached me in the needs of self published authors and remains a constant pillar of support to me in my journey to help creative businesses.
