(Bear with me, folks, this part is still under construction and is ever-evolving) Because I've had such different types of work experiences you've been able to see business processes of all different types, which combined with my analytical-type business/finance education and brain, means I've got a lot of experience in troubleshooting and streamlining processes for companies of all shapes and sizes. Plus there's the creative/musical/writer side of my brain which means I'm going to be able to think outside the box, write reports coherently, and present findings in an informative and entertaining way. Some of my qualifications include: • Strong analytical and documentation skills • Double-entry bookkeeping and accounting experience • Superb verbal and written communication skills • 3+ years experience in service based industries, including property accounting • Firm grasp on financial statement creation and analysis
