I (Kadie) never considered myself an entrepreneur. I started my business because I knew I was good at budgeting and finances and I wanted to help other business owners that may not understand the financial aspect of their business. Just like you can design an advertisement or shoot and edit photos and video, I create with numbers. I understand what those numbers are saying and how to effectively communicate that information with you. After spending 10 years explaining data and financial analysis to people that didn’t speak the language, I learned how to talk about it in a way that made it easier for everyone to understand. I developed charts that explained what was happening and recommended resolutions to everyday financial problems. I can’t wait to connect with you and talk about providing financial solutions for your company.
Kadie started out studying Mathematical Sciences and Accounting, graduating from Penn State University with a BS in Math/Science. Upon graduating, she was employed with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a Sales and Use Tax Auditor. Later, she became a Statistical Analyst, working to help children through the Early Intervention Program, Subsidized Childcare Program and the Head Start Program offered through the Commonwealth. The data she collected and analyzed directly resulted in the funding which was received by each of the 67 counties in Pennsylvania. Following that position, she became a Budget Analyst for the Department of Health and Human Services. She spent 5 years reviewing budgets for grants and the Governor’s Office. Those programs included the Hospital Preparedness Program, Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Medical Services. The past few years she's spent caring for her young children and aging grandmother while preparing herself to run her own business. She currently provides bookkeeping services as a way of helping other entrepreneurs and small businesses to stay focused on achieving their dreams both financially and creatively. In her free time, Kadie enjoys carting her children to soccer games and road trip vacations (rarely visiting the same place twice).
