At Cents and Balance we love numbers…
…AND we know that not everybody feels the same way!
By managing day-to-day financial transactions of the business, we take away the stress and free up your time to focus on what you do best!
As business owners ourselves, we understand that we each have our own skills, certain things we love to do, and others we would rather never do again. Chances are, when you got into business, you didn’t think about data entry, entering payments, sending out invoices, or reconciling your accounts. Unless, of course, you’re a bookkeeper or accountant, too! But these are the things that every successful business needs, and needs done well.
With Cents and Balance you are getting a team to help you get all those nitty-gritty tasks off your plate, and a partner in reaching your goals.
About Katie White
With a passion for numbers, and putting puzzle pieces together, at age 18 Katie set off to college with her dreams set on being an accounting major. Fast forward 4 years and Katie was graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelors in Social Work! After obtaining her MBA from Brandeis University a few years later, Katie spent over 15 years working in the health and wellness industry serving in roles from project management to operations management to business development. Through it all, her heart has always been with the numbers – looking at data, budgets, financial reports, etc. She took the leap in 2016 to switch careers into accounting and hasn’t looked back! Her 18-year-old self really did know what she wanted!
Katie launched Cents and Balance in 2018 as her night and weekend side gig while trying to figure out what accounting direction she wanted to pursue. It didn’t take long for her to realize that bookkeeping was it. She loves a good puzzle and helping business owners find relief from the stress and overwhelm of the accounting side of things tugged at her Social Worker roots! Just one year later in 2019, Katie was able to turn Cents and Balance into a full-time business.
The WHY behind Cents and Balance has always been Katie’s two children, Oliver and Nora. It had been a dream to be home when her kids came off the bus, and that dream is now a reality. Katie, her husband Orson, and the kids love to camp, hike, watch sports and spend time with their large extended family. They have 2 dogs, Jackson and Luke, and 6 chickens which all have names! Katie enjoys running, reading, and drinking a good cup of coffee!
