Our Team

We are a dedicated team who love doing the work most people dread — Bookkeeping!

We are small business specialists.


Emily Marston

Managing Director, Quickbooks Pro Advisor, Gusto People Advisor Certified, Xero Collaborator, Bookkeeping & Payroll Specialist*

*specifically clean up/catch up and systems implementation

Emily started this business due to her love of bookkeeping and small business.  Working with business owners to get their bookkeeping in order and working for them is what drives her.  Having run a retail business for over 20 years and a bookkeeping business for almost as long, Emily understands all the pressures facing small business and all the hats the owners have to wear.  Most business owners don’t like or ‘get’ bookkeeping, and they shouldn’t have to.  The DIY mentality of most entrepreneurs can distract them from putting their energy and expertise where it should be.  “Freeing up people to do what they do best is the goal.”

Emily is a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, mother of two amazing boys, and spends down time gardening or snuggled up in a blanket reading or watching movies with a giant bowl of popcorn.

Founder of Film Is Truth 24 Times A Second

Emily has served on the board of directors for The Whatcom Film Association, Excellence Northwest, and Film Is Truth A Nonprofit Corporation.
