I love it when a plan comes together!

Keith started his path down the dark side to accounting circa 1980 when his father-in-law handed him an advertisement for the Certified General Accountant program. “You think I can become an accountant?” Keith asked. His father-in-law replied, "you do your own taxes and that’s what accountants do.” Shockingly, it set in.

The rest, as they say, is history. Keith finally received his CMA designation in 1986, and his in-laws and parents couldn’t have been more proud. He opened his own office in 1992. In all the time since, his passion and expertise in accounting has only grown stronger. In the peak season, Keith employs five people on his staff. Over the years, he and his team have become known for their expertise and experience with helping small businesses.
