Picture it: Arizona, 2015.

I was rocking my superhero and thinking what can I do with my accounting, finance education and experience, as I didn’t want to go back to work. I didn’t want to deal with negotiating a work from home agreement nor did I want to deal with any type of absence issue.


But, I had to do something….so “Closing Your Books” was born and in 2018 

 “Body of Accounting - division of Closing Your Books”( health and wellness accounting )was born.

Like I said..I had to do something.

"Thank you so much for stopping by. If you stumbled on here, you are a woman business owner or you are responsible for the financial aspect of your family’s business and you are looking for accounting, bookkeeping, financial management, technology support. 

You come to the right place." 

I am super excited that you found us. 

So, This is Me.............
