Meet The Accountkeepers
We're putting decades of combined accounting and finance experience to work for you.
While, you know, still being human.
Managing Director & Founder
My inspiration to start The Accountkeepers came from seven, often exasperated, words I’ve heard many times as a Chief Financial Officer: “It’s hard to find a good bookkeeper!”. This, I have learned, is simply not true. What’s hard is understanding what a bookkeeper is, what your company really needs, and providing the right structure and support for a bookkeeper to thrive. As it turns out, most companies aren’t well suited to do this.
And why should they be?! Why should your business be an expert at accounting? Let us do that. Let your people spend their time on what matters to your firm, what you’re uniquely talented at, and let us take care of the books. We’re really, really good at it.
For more than a decade I’ve been a Chief Financial Officer, an entrepreneur, and an investment banker. Over that time, I’ve come to love bookkeepers. They’re the best! They keep us organized, and give us the financial data we need to make smart decisions. We at The Accountkeepers love them, and are excited to be at the forefront of a shift in the way companies manage their bookkeeping.

As someone who can’t get enough of fast-paced companies, Robin has a deep appreciation for the important role bookkeepers play in keeping organizations healthy. She loves working with numbers almost as much as people, and is thrilled to support the growth of company that values both.
When she’s not in front of a computer, Robin can be found riding her bike, trying to decipher her collection of Appalachian Trail maps, or taking advantage of any opportunity she has to see live music.
