Valerie Bayless

Owner

Valerie studied accounting and business administration at SWOSU.  She always had a love of numbers and excelled in all business classes, so there was no doubt that her career would be somewhere in the accounting world.

Valerie began her bookkeeping career as an office manager for a company that owned five convenience stores.  This is where she started working with QuickBooks and learned the ins-and-outs of office management.  She was responsible for all aspects of A/P & A/R, payroll, payroll taxes, HR as well as helping with the management of staff.  Next Valerie worked as A/P & A/R clerk for an oilfield company.  After eight years with the company, she decided she was ready to take her skills and experience in a new direction and started her bookkeeping service.  One business at a time, by word of mouth advertising only, Valerie and her team has seen her company grow from a part-time business to a thriving one.
