helping right brain professionals navigate the left brain world of accounting


QuickBooks is one of my passions! I’ve been using the program since helping a choreographer friend with some basic bookkeeping in the early ’90s in sunny California. I’m now living north of the border, working in media production AND helping businesses with their QuickBooks. I’m a dual citizen partnering with customers on-site and remotely… both in Canada and the US.

I’m a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and an Advanced Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor in Canada and the US. I have my Certified Professional Bookkeeper designation from the IPBC (Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada). I’m part of the Intuit Trainer Writer Network, a member of the the National Advisor Network, and a Certified Consultant with The Sleeter Group. I’m a contributor to the Intuit Blog, an original member of the Intuit Canada Accountant Council, and a member of the Intuit VIP40. I specialize in taming QuickBooks gone wild, untangling GST messes, shrinking files that have grown too large, plus training and troubleshooting.  I love teaching, answering questions, and helping people with QuickBooks challenges. If I don’t have an answer, I’ll find it!

I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.

    Do you have experience helping not-for-profit organizations?

  2. I do…and I just sent you an email 🙂

  3. Hello Marnie, I needed some help setting up HST for charity. I am in Canada. Can you help? Thank you.

  4. Hi Marnie, I have no experience as a book keeper and basically have taught myself due to no other choice how to do simple book keeping. I am working with quickbooks pro and just noticed recently that it has my bank account balance sitting at -42,000.00. This is actually not the right amount, I have approximately $4,778.00 in it. How do I go about finding out where the error is? Where do I even start?

  5. Sorry for the late reply Barbara. I was away at the annual Intuit conference in California! If you haven’t solved your puzzle yet, my first question is have you reconciled the bank accounts through QuickBooks? That’s the very first thing you need to look at.
