What Does Stress-Free Personal Finance Look Like?

See what our clients have to say!

If I didn’t have you, I wouldn’t have done ANYTHING, and [my accountant] would probably have to move in with me!


We are very grateful for the time and effort [Janis] dedicates to her clients.  Her reports are both accurate and timely.  She provides impeccable documentation of the clients’ accounts and is always quick to respond to both phone calls and emails.

Client’s CPA

Janis is extremely well organized. She clearly has knowledge and experience in handling both financial and medical paperwork. It is nice to find someone that I can trust so much not only with my personal information but also to know she will follow through on what we have discussed. Once we get things going I know this will free up time and give me peace of mind so I can focus on other things in my life.


There are only a handful of people who have the patience, intelligence, compassion, and determination to do your job. We are just very fortunate to have you helping us.
