Thank you for visiting Maven Bookkeeping! My name is Tanis Young, and I have been an active member of the bookkeeping community for over 25 years. In addition to a diploma in accounting, I am a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and a Pro Advisor for both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online (QBO).
I am passionate about helping entrepreneurs grow their business by having a thorough knowledge of their business finances. Technology is a big part of our world, so I’m continually learning about how to best use what’s available in order to improve the efficiency of capturing financial transactions. I believe that establishing and maintaining bookkeeping processes is critical, and I can help you organize your files to optimize your time.
In 2005, my diverse background and experience lead me to take on the role of a trainer, delivering seminars and webinars for business owners and accounting professionals who use QuickBooks Online (QBO). I use my in-depth knowledge of the software and experience of working closely with entrepreneurs to deliver a well-rounded understanding of cloud accounting.
