Meet the team
Jennifer is a powerhouse. She spent over seven years in public practice to earn her Chartered Accountant designation and learn the disciplines of public practice, including financial reporting, auditing, tax planning and personal and corporate tax return preparation. When she was ready to move on, she decided to put her accounting skills towards helping companies from the inside. She landed in a young tech startup, Neverblue, where for over eight years she thrived in an environment of rapid growth and company evolution. Jennifer then decided that she wanted to work with more young tech companies and soon after, she created Powerhouse Strategic Inc, where she was a CFO consultant for many quickly expanding, local tech firms. During this time, she developed an approach to instill financial discipline, accurate financial reporting, budgeting, and forecasting in young, developing companies. In 2018, she started GritBooks, where she is applying and teaching these skills to revolutionize the world of bookkeeping.
Pam is an expert at what she does, and she is an excel wiz. With 20 years as a CPA in both public practice and working directly with companies, she has mastered the senior accountant role. One of Pam’s strengths is being dropped in the middle of an accounting mess to efficiently fix and organize the company’s books until the financials are accurate. Pam does two things for GritBooks: 1) with her wealth of experience, she provides senior guidance in accounting support for the junior staff, and analyzes the financial results for accuracy, 2) as a senior CPA accountant, Pam takes on ad-hoc assignments for any of our clients that need additional, senior level help including helping them implement internal discipline and controls, performing accounting reconciliations, assisting in preparing for fiscal year ends, and much more. She looks forward to accounting challenges and can hardly wait to roll up her sleeves and tackle the latest problems.
