I started my career by pursuing my passion - a degree in Culinary Arts. I then pursued another degree in Hospitality Management. It was throughout my studies and my early career as a restauranteur and private caterer that I realized my affinity for accounting.
When my husband Daniel and I were married I had the privilege of taking on the bookkeeping of his business - Mr. Camera, Inc. - the largest television production company in Las Vegas.
After achieving my Bookkeeping Certification, I decided to expand this into a company of my own - Umbrella Bookkeeping, LLC. I am also a Quickbooks Online Certified ProAdvisor as well as a Notary Public.
I have extensive experience with both for-profit and non-profit businesses, from bookkeeping to secretary of state filings, business taxes to independent audit readiness.
Welcome. I look forward to working with you.

What is a Certified Bookkeeper?
Company owners about to hire a bookkeeper are entrusting their most important possession to a stranger. They want to know that they are not putting their precious asset at risk.
Yet, most owners have no way of evaluation a bookkeeper. That is why the Certified Bookkeeper designation through the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers (AIPB) has become so important.
Certification assures an employer that this bookkeeper has the proven skills and knowledge needed to make adjusting entries, monthly bank reconciliations, payroll, depreciation, inventory, as well as installing the internal controls needed to protect company assets.
To become a Certified Bookkeeper, you must fully understand double-entry accounting; pass a four-part national certification exam at a Prometric Test Center; Sign a code of ethics to assure commitment to integrity; Have 2 years full-time bookkeeping experience; Constantly update your skill-set by earning 20 continuing education credits each year.
