"All successful businesses, needs a "Grade A" Bookkeeper"

Objective

Dynamic and highly qualified Full-Charge Bookkeeper with extensive knowledge of accounting principles, taxation policies and income tax procedures. My main priority is very simple, provide the service and expertise that I've gathered throughout the past 15 years and apply it on my day to day job. Because if I perform well that reflects on whomever I'm working with. Nothing is better than seeing a smile as well as money in the pockets of those you've rendered your services to. Now that is priceless!
