Why Absolute Accounting?

One of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen small business owners make is trying to do it all!  And when it comes to accounting, this can be a huge problem for your business.  Let my team and I save you time and money when it comes to bookkeeping, payroll, sales tax, and more — it’s like pushing the easy button on your business’s finances.  

Gain the peace of mind of knowing the financial health of your business.  Be prepared for the natural ebbs and flows of income and expenses.  And, work with a professional that you can TRUST to do it right!

Our Team






One of the most pivotal moments in my business happened when a mentor told me that if I wanted to have more time with my kids and make more money, I should look into doing freelance work in accounting. I thought “why not?”

Since that moment and for 20 years, I’ve provided bookkeeping and financial services to small/ medium businesses. In addition, I help my clients by eliminating the need for them to hire full-time bookkeeping personnel.   I specialize in financial planning, budgets, payable and receivable accounts, cash/bank reconciliation, payroll, sales, and franchise tax reporting.

In short, I help people who don’t know have the expertise (or time) to properly do their accounting so that they can put their business in the strongest financial position.



I love to travel with my partner and spend time with our four four-legged babies and three grown kids. Ryan is retired Air Force and living in Charleston, SC, Ned is working in Texas for GM, and Taylor is studying fashion in Italy.
