Brightwater Accounting

Your time is valuable.

Brightwater Accounting offers cloud-based accounting and tax services. As a CPA financial planner and QuickBooks Online Proadvisor, I can help you juggle your business's variable income with other big savings goals. I understand what it’s like to sell products on Etsy and what some of the unique expenses are as a blogger. I know what it's like operating a business and the importance of cash flow from my time in corporate accounting

And I get it. Taxes are tricky. Whether you have started a new business or a new job, gotten married, had your first child, or just feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the tax return process, I am happy to advise you. As a CPA, I stay up to date on tax code changes so that you don’t have to. I offer year-round support for my clients and I am happy to answer your tax questions throughout the year.
