Nancy started with The Bottom Line in 1982, working for the former owner and learning from the ground up.  In 1991, with the retirement of the owner, Nancy purchased the business and has taken it to new heights – instead of just a local bookkeeping service, her services span the entire nation.  With not only the advances in technology but also software, in 1995 Nancy saw the writing on the wall when first introduced to QuickBooks by a local CPA who assured her that it was easy to learn and should be on her radar.

She realized this software was a game changer and embraced it wholeheartedly, making The Bottom Line a QuickBooks-centric practice soon thereafter.  By 2006 Nancy was branching out to 3rd party applications that add in to QuickBooks – something fairly new at that time.  Nancy had dabbled with data transfer software in the past but realized that much more was out there and keeps adding the best of the best to her repertoire.

Because of her presence on various QuickBooks and bookkeeping forums and the valuable advice she continues to give, she was awarded The Sleeter Group’s Magnificent Member Award in 2010 as a QuickBooks Guru. She was also nominated for the Top 100 Intuit ProAdvisors for 2014 & 2015 and is included as a Top 100 member for 2016 – a prestigious award reserved for only the best of the best. Nancy is also a Certified Bookkeeper through American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers.

With 2 adult daughters and 4 grandchildren, Nancy’s days are busy both in and out of the business. A very proud Santa Barbara native, she reminds potential clients that she’s never far away thanks to the internet.
