Hi, I’m Kelly!
I work with heart-centered female entrepreneurs who find the financial part of their business completely overwhelming. I provide them with the tools they need to take charge of their finances, ease their money worries, grow healthy and profitable conscious businesses and—ultimately—gain the freedom to focus on what they truly love.
How did I get here?
I’ve spent over 20 years in the corporate accounting world, everything from regular accounting to internal auditing to banking to working with an investment management company. I’m also a certified Profit First Professional trained to be a strategic, trusted advisor and integral part of my client’s business success. I started my own bookkeeping business in 2004 and, while I really enjoyed my corporate experiences, I discovered that my joy lies in helping small business owners and purpose-driven women who are bringing their own dream and visions to life.
I’m obsessed with numbers and, while I have the experience to work any accounting job, I chose to focus on working with heart-centered entrepreneurs because I deeply believe in the need for their work to heal and bring joy to the world; their success is directly connected to the well-being of our communities.
I’ve since met so many incredible women out there who are gifted at helping their clients and changing their lives for the better, and who truly love what they do. Yet, they completely struggle with the financial side of operating their business and live in a consistent state of overwhelm. They typically feel like no one gets them and their unique needs, and they feel alone, struggling to stay afloat. These women are so committed to serving others that they often lose balance in their own lives, and all of this snowballs to make them not only less effective at their work, but they lose their energy, joy and can even give up on their business and dreams. This completely breaks my heart and I feel called to help these underserved women who are SO needed in this world!
Thus, that’s what I’m here for: to be a bridge of support for you in becoming empowered to create the life of your dreams, including your financial wellness. It’s about YOU creating a business and life that works FOR you—not you being a slave to your business and to money. Once you align your vision, mission, and goals with your money, your finances will flow. You’ll be amazed at how easy and automated your business will become, AND you’ll have a super clear picture at any given moment where your business is at and what you’re working towards.
If this sounds like a match for what you need, I invite you to schedule a complimentary 45-minute consultation with me by clicking here. I love getting to connect with other women and would be thrilled to get to know you!
Get to know me even more:
I have two first loves in my life: my husband, Justin, and my six-year-old daughter, Lily. Lily is my big inspiration behind 238 Accounting. I really wanted to create a life where I could be home with her and have the flexibility to work my own schedule. Where did 238 come from? Lily used to wander around the house saying ‘238’ repeatedly. I’m always interested to see what numbers show up for me, and 238 has stuck with me ever since!
I live in Buffalo, New York and am a proud Western New Yorker.
I’m also passionate about health and wellness. In 2012, I became a certified holistic health counselor through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
I’m honored to be the creator of Prosperous and Profitable Female Entrepreneurs. We are a networking and educational group for female entrepreneurs with local events in Buffalo, NY and online events on our Facebook page (here)
I adore animals! I have 2 dogs and a kitty, and I used to be a foster mom and volunteer at the local shelter (which I hope to get involved with again soon!).
