I am Terri Kapton, owner of Woodlake Bookkeeping Services. My bookkeeping experience goes back 10 years when I worked for a large church in the Chicago metropolitan area where I oversaw the business operations of the church which included building maintenance, accounts payable and receivable, bank and credit card reconciliation as well as payroll.
I look forward to working with you in order to free you from the “books” and make you available to simply run your business.
