Hi, my name is Linda Hartsema. I have worked with many small businesses and creative people in my professional career.
I have a degree in Accountancy & Controlling and I am a QuickBooks ProAdvisor as well as a Xero Certified Advisor. I recently earned a tax technician qualification from the Irish Tax Institute.
I enjoy helping small business clients better understand their finances as well as leveraging my knowledge of finance and small business management to improve efficiency and optimize business performance.
Originally from the Netherlands, I have lived and worked in the US, Ireland, China, and Australia. The last few years I have worked extensively with clients in California.
I am currently based in Ireland.
