How she’s helped clients meet their business needs:

  • One of her clients had been keeping Excel spreadsheets to track/accumulate his billing time and expenses and did not use any accounting software. He wanted to automate his processes to be more efficient with the time and billing. Know the client and his wife, Lori suggested they utilize QuickBooks. She went over the benefits of both the desktop and online versions and the client decided on the online version. Lori trained them to utilize software to take advantage of the automated capabilities. This resolution also streamlined their year-end tax preparation.
