Hi, I'm Julie Merrill

I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in Economics and concentration in Accounting.

I earned my California Certified Public Accountant license while working at Arthur Andersen in 1999.

I have setup, cleaned up and managed the accounting and finance functions at multiple companies and been an integral part of companies striving to start, grow and accelerate.

I have founded, owned and managed companies (SUPchic, Team Merrill LLC, FarmShake, Inc). I have seen hands-on what works and what doesn't and share those lessons learned with my clients.

I have been working with QuickBooks since 2001 and am also a QuickBooks Online Certified ProAdvisor.

In 2021, I began working with a local tax firm in San Diego, California, to include tax advisory and preparation in my services offered.

I love finding efficiencies and automating workflows, and I share these methods with my clients to help them save time and money.
