Ways to Work With Me

As a freelance designer/artist/photographer, my biggest frustration has always been tax time!!! And pretty much all things accounting/finance related… (besides actually making money, of course)! You make it easy to ask questions, learn, and go at a pace that is digestible. I feel like we've been friends for a long time every time we talk and I enjoy every single meeting!

Tax Preparation and Advising

If you live online as much as I do, you’ll be happy to know that location is no longer a requirement for tax preparation. I’m 100% online with my clients so you can stay in your pajamas and  have a trusted advisor in your midst to slay your tax giants. Self-service tax products are popular, but the moment you get stuck and a wave of panic and frustration washes over you like a bad spray tan, you’ll want someone in your corner who knows your situation and can advise you personally. Taxes are a deeply personal experience and you deserve personalized treatment – not a cookie cutter experience.



Tax Planning

Does the thought of tax time next year leave you in a cold sweat? Well shower off cause it's going to be okay! You don't have to wait until tax time to get tax advice. I offer comprehensive Tax Planning sessions to get you on the right path now, rather than waiting until tax time to get things figured out. We will work together to create a plan of action so there are no tears when tax season rolls around. No more wondering, “should I be filing quarterly taxes?”

Consulting and Training

Looking for some guidance with software or need help figuring out how the heck to plan for taxes now that you're in business? Book some time with me and we'll make sense of the questions spinning in your head. 


Clean Up Sessions

Melissa makes things quick and simple to understand, which for someone who isn't a “numbers” person, is very important. I was struggling knowing my “magic number” so that I could quit my job, and knowing what sort of profit I was making (if any). Since I'm not making much as it is, I was hesitant to spend even more money on a bookkeeper or tax person. Everything is so much clearer and easier to understand now! I have a goal in mind for what I need to reach each month and also have a good idea of how much everything is costing me to run the business. In addition, my income and expenses are all in order and ready for tax time!

Ongoing Bookkeeping


If you already use bookkeeping software but it drives you nuts because you're not Bill Gates and don’t have a background in nerddom, consider me your personal numbers tutor. I’ll teach you how to use your software too. Sometimes all you need is someone to hold your hand, slap your butt, and tell you you’re awesome so you stop running from numbers and start embracing them. Seriously. It’s time to hug it out. 

We've got packages that will keep things running smooth so you can focus on the client work you love and we'll take care of the day to day number crunching. Of course we want to pair this with some rock star tax prep and planning too so there are no missing pieces in your money game.
