I’m a mom, a wife, a creative, an entrepreneur and a business owner.
I’m up for the pursuit of business ventures that feed both my soul and my bank account. I am familiar not only with adversity, but also with the resilience gained to engineer that adversity in unconventional ways and achieve my financial goals with integrity. And my greatest achievement by far has been the role of wife and mom to two amazing kids.
My journey to ownership of Independence Bookkeeping has been a winding and scenic backroad adventure. My start in the business world began at the age of 19, a single mother working as a receptionist at a paper company. (No Dunder Mifflin jokes, please.) Over the course of my 17 years there, while raising my daughter single-handedly, I first received my BA in communications and later, my MBA with a concentration in accounting. I climbed the corporate ladder, working and training in every department, assisting and traveling with the President and CFO.
Always motivated to try other things, I had many side hustles. I worked as a line producer on independent feature films, where I met my equally creative and driven husband, Derek. I also created and monetized a specialized wedding blog, and ran an e-commerce t-shirt site that I launched and sold for a profit.
In 2016, I founded Exit 4 Escape Rooms with my husband and three other partners. Today we have two locations, a dozen employees and franchise growth in progress.
I know what financial stability, success and growth require. I know first-hand what it takes to start and run a small business, manage employees, and drive revenue.
And I have engineered Independence Bookkeeping around the flexibility and freedom that you, the modern business owner, requires.
