“Acting as Accountant and Controller for me with three different businesses I’ve owned over the past 12 years, Julie is quick to respond and proactive with recommendations to streamline processes within my organizations. Julie has helped grow my businesses as well as save money by implementing best practices internally as well as externally with vendors, ultimately helping to increase my bottom line profit. She is very well versed with regulations within the State of Indiana from process to tax requirements, ensuring I stay in compliance and continue to grow. She has proven to be a quick study and is flexible with her abilities. Working outside the accounting realm, Julie even helped evaluate and determine which media markets to invest in and which to pull out of for one of my businesses running multi-million dollar radio and television commercials across the US and Canada. With the constant change, Julie met the challenges on time and helped garner the attention of major retailers. Julie was a strong part in helping us meet those retailers’ requirements and land these national retailer contracts. Julie’s understanding of processes has also helped develop better working relationships with banks and state-ran organizations. Recently, Julie assisted my business in receiving a PPP loan, allowing us to weather the storm during the pandemic. Julie worked directly with the bank and helped us throughout the process to approval. Thanks to Julie we are on pace to outperform our best year yet, all due to her persistence and understanding of processes.”

“Julie has always gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping me with my personal and business accounting and tax issues. I’m a very small business, and I often don’t have the time or the skill to successfully manage my books. I miss little things that turn into BIG things later. I became overwhelmed. Julie stepped in, took my mess, and made sense of it. Asking for help is so difficult but having Julie organize my business has made it possible for me to go out and provide the skill that people need from me. Now the State is happy. The IRS is happy. And I am extremely happy.”
-Daniel Borud, RN, CEO of Northern Lights Medical
“Julie takes excellent care of all our accounting, including monthly account reconciliation, paying bills, payroll, audits for 401K and insurance yearly. She works directly with our bank to help with any issues we may have. Julie does a great job with continued education and stays on top of all the different taxes we have. Pro Plastics has employees in four different states, and she makes sure to stay on top of the different taxes for each state. Julie has continually went above and beyond for Pro Plastics. She has taken time to make sure wire transfers are done properly, even taking a check to the bank when the wire transfer was not able to be done online. We are blessed to work with Julie!”
-Christy Nance, Office Manager of Pro Plastics Sales & Service
