Owner and CEO
Welcome to Yield! Thanks for checking out our website!
In 1994, I received my BS in Accounting and Finance at George Mason University and worked in Corporate Accounting for over 20 years. During that time, I worked for a Cooperative in Northern VA where I was responsible for providing consolidated financial statements needed to make critical business decisions. At the same time, I had a few personal clients that I was doing the books for just to make extra money. That side of things grew so fast that I decided it was time to start a business for myself! In the fall of 2013, I quit my job and opened Yield.
It became clear that there were hardly any reputable bookkeeping companies in this area. There were people doing it on the side in the evening or there were CPA’s that were charging a TON of money. Once word got out that this business was up and running the calls just kept coming in and I realized I had found quite a niche in the DC area.
We have grown exponentially over the past 7 years and currently have 12 employees and over 200 clients! We have won Best Bookkeeper in Loudoun County 3 years in a row now for a reason…we are affordable, accurate and reliable. But not only that, we are personable and friendly and not like your average bookkeeper – we actually have a lot of fun with each other and with our clients. We really care about your business and helping you grow…just as if it were our own company! We want to help you lighten your workload so that you can focus on what you do best. Here at Yield we offer full service bookkeeping services that are customized to your small business needs.

Chief Operating Officer
I graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1988 with a Bachelors’ degree in business administration and a minor in accounting. Shortly after graduating, I moved to northern Virginia where I worked in accounting for over 25 years.
The majority of the 25 years were spent at NRTC, a cooperative in Herndon, VA as the accounting manager, where I met Rochelle. As the accounting manager, I was responsible for overseeing the day to day activities of the accounting department such as A/P, A/R, financial statements, variance analyses, budgeting and patronage capital. In March 2014, my husband and I moved to southwest Florida and I started working for Yield Bookkeeping in November 2014.
Rochelle and I are quite familiar with each of our strengths and work to ensure that our clients receive the utmost professional and economical bookkeeping services possible.
