She enjoys keeping up on new ways to help clients create efficiencies and maintain accurate financial records and reports. Her credentials include certification as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.


Clients tell Dawn they appreciate her positive approach to problem solving and detail-oriented bookkeeping processes. From her experience working with large diverse portfolios and businesses, she is able to pull all the loose ends together to help small business owners. And ultimately helping people is what Dawn has always wanted to do. 

In her career, Dawn spent 15 years in the South Florida real estate and property management industry.  Her portfolio included all types of commercial and residential assets where she managed teams and property staff. This work had intensive accounting requirements. 

Always an entrepreneur, Dawn started her first business at 11 years old, creating Dawn's Doll Hospital while working with her mother at Mom’s Last Resort in Plant City, Florida. Dawn currently lives in San Rafael, California with her husband and her sweet dog, Gracie.
