ABOUT

Founded in 2001, we are not your traditional CPA firm.  In fact, we don't do income tax returns or audits (we work with your preferred professionals for those functions.)  We are street fighters who bring an outside perspective to each client by fiercely stewarding your assets as if they were our own, and using practical tools & solutions to increase profits, maximize cash flow, and grow the value of your business.  We also develop healthy leadership teams, and use robust simulations to develop long-range plans and strategies.

Founder

With 30 years in the trenches, Mary knows what works…. and what doesn’t. She supports clients’ systems needs, cash flow issues, product costing, growing pains, organizational structure, and analysis of where their business is headed.  She is a veteran  CFO and experienced supervisor of accounting, HR, and IT staff, with a strong history of developing self-directed leadership teams.

In addition to being a proud math nerd, Mary is an active community volunteer and a musician, playing piano and woodwinds in several bands.  She and her family live on a small farm where they raise grass-fed beef & pork on rotational grazing pastures,  practicing sustainable agriculture methods in their woods and greenhouse.
