Lisa Pearson, Owner
Lisa Pearson has been doing QuickBooks® consulting and training and bookkeeping as a career for sixteen years. She earned her degree in Accounting and Business Administration in 1996. For many years before starting her business, her career was working for other companies in Corporate Accounting as well as Small Business Accounting.
In January of 2000, Lisa began doing a few bookkeeping and QuickBooks consulting jobs while working full time in an accounting position for a business that she and her husband formed. Response was overwhelmingly positive and Lisa decided to use her accounting background to form a business and provide bookkeeping services and training for other small business owners as well. Lisa formed Lisa’s Bookkeeping and Office Training LLC in January 2002. The need for QuickBooks training exceeded Lisa’s expectations and her business grew quickly so in 2003, Lisa studied to become a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor. Lisa is certified in QuickBooks versions 2003 through 2016 as well as QuickBooks Point of Sale and QuickBooks Enterprise for Corporations.
In 2018, Lisa sold her Springfield client base and moved to St Louis, where she became an associate of the prestigious accounting firm, Purk & Associates. Lisa still provides the same services that she has provided for the last sixteen years, but now with the additional support of a team of professionals that provide a full range of additional services from income tax preparation, audit services, wealth management and financial planning.
