She teaches classes at various times of the year, teaching QuickBooks at an introductory, intermediate and Advanced level.

While working in the accounting field for over 20 years, as an Accounting Manager of a Marketing/Media Placement Agency, Public Accountant, and Payroll Specialist, Deborah realized that there was a growing need for qualified, skilled bookkeepers. Her extensive background and vast experience have enabled her to found a corporation in which associates are trained in bookkeeping, accounting, payroll, and exceptional customer service.

This corporation is based upon the firm belief that outsourcing bookkeeping services is a mode of hiring the best-qualified person in the most economical way.
