Loretta taught herself to 10-key at her first job in high school so she could correct balances on Accounts Receivable ledger cards. While working in the brokerage industry and in banking IT, she moonlighted as a bookkeeper for various small businesses and as treasurer for multiple organizations. When she needed more flexibility to raise her young children and support the family business, Loretta left the corporate world and joined the ranks of professional bookkeepers. For almost twenty years, she has worked with many industries, including health care, real estate, construction, restaurant, retail, non-profit, and service, along with a Chamber of Commerce. She treats clients' businesses as if they were her own and loves that "the answer is always zero." Loretta lives in Minneapolis with her adult children (who think she needs to get out of the house more so they can have some privacy.)
