Located in Pacifica, the jewel of the San Francisco Bay Area - Serving Bay businesses since 1999
In her spare time, when she is not being entertained by, or walking her rescued Maltese, Aspen, Pat enjoys spending time with her family, including her 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. Her ‘hidden’ passion is to be a member of a dynamic, performing Improv Group again. In the quiet moments; her spirituality is an important aspect of her life and spends time each day contemplating her own personal growth and the importance of compassion and understanding for all beings.
Pat founded Bookkeeping Plus in July of 1999. Prior to starting Bookkeeping Plus, she worked for 25 years in the auto dealer industry, including spending 15 years as Controller for a large dealership in the Chicago suburbs. Pat relocated to San Francisco in 1995, where she continued to work in accounting for 4 years, before she realized she had a great desire to help small businesses. She saw a need for small businesses to have a partner in all bookkeeping aspects, a role that often isn’t full time in smaller companies, yet is essential in running an efficient company. This vision held true, she often realizes that the biggest hurdle for a new company, and some established ones, is the need for a financial partner as most “creatives” don’t have the accounting or organizational background that a company needs to grow and thrive.
Pat feels very blessed to be working with a very dynamic team of women who share her sense of high integrity, professionalism, united vision, and who work together impeccably.

She really appreciates her co-workers at Bookkeeping Plus for their team spirit, and how they always help and support each other. Since Bookkeeping Plus has such a varied clientele, she loves that she is always learning and growing, while using her many years of experience to serve her clients daily needs. In her spare time she enjoys reading, long walks (taking in the trails, beaches and waves of Pacifica) and watching live music.
