MY BACK GROUND
I worked full time at San Jose State University as a Catering Supervisor and at a Storage facility in Santa Clara as a part time assistant manager while attending Real Estate Courses at Mission College. Soon after I began my Career in Commercial Property Management, which took me as far North as Sacramento, Ca. and as far South as San Luis Obispo, Ca.
In commercial Property Management my responsibilities equally matched those of a Bookkeeper, I had to do collections, data entry, accounts receivable, accounts payable, produce financial reports for the owner(s), track the return on investments, but I wore many hats in Property Management, like most business owners do.
I found myself negotiating legal contracts, Marketing, Designing and publishing websites, handling customer complaints, posting legal ad’s for auctions, hosting auctions, training employees, setting policies, writing employee manuals, payroll processing, managing independent contractors, researching competition, analyzing data, and learned how to read and understand the financial reports that I was producing. Most of which was manual ledgers or excel, before owners brought in computers to track information. Each company I worked for required more education, so keeping up to date in the above areas has become second nature.
While living in Sacramento, Ca. I was trained by a CPA to do the Bookkeeping/Accounting for her Son’s Trucking company. At the same time I took a course at Charles A Jones skill center for Bookkeeping to see if there we’re any area’s I needed to improve on.
I still maintained my career in Commercial Property Management, while taking additional courses in Taxes, and basic Accounting. I found myself being pulled more and more towards employment positions for Bookkeeping and Accounting and even worked in the County and government sector over the course of my employment history in the Accounting Departments.
I started Vincent Bookkeeping in the summer of 2009. I saw a lot of my friends and family wanting to start a business after losing their jobs. I wanted those around me to have hope and reliable guidance so they could be successful. I quickly realized it wasn’t just my friends who needed my service, it was my community, so I sprang into action helping as many small business owners, start their companies as I could. I also found myself helping current small business owners who we're struggling with the economy to lower their debt, and down size or even close a failing business when all other options had been exhausted.
With the economy falling, there seemed to be more demand for gathering and organizing documents for IRS audits, so once again I sprang into action, I took some needed course work and contacting the CPA's, and IRS agents I knew to get the information I needed to help those in my community.
Since opening Vincent Bookkeeping I have had the opportunity to work with and learn more about Partnerships, Sole Proprietors, Limited Liability Corporations, C, S, and Sub corporations as well as Non-Profits.
I am the first to admit I don't have all the answers but I go the extra mile to get the answers I need to help my clients. Continuing Education is always a high priority for me since it serves my customers’ needs as well. Each business is as unique as the owners who start them up, and I enjoy the challenge of finding the right information to assist each client with their own special Bookkeeping needs.
My desire to help others is what has created Vincent Bookkeeping.
To all my current and past clients, I Thank you for making Vincent Bookkeeping the success it is today!
