Meet The Advisory Board
Since 1995, Rachel Barnett has been a QuickBooks user, eventually earning the coveted Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor status. For six years, Rachel owned and operated Primarily Bookkeeping, d/b/a Your Bookkeeping Fairy Godmother, a Seattle-area bookkeeping firm, until 2018.
Following the sale of her business, Rachel embraced her passion to provide behind-the-scenes support for other professionals. She is in the process of starting a new business, Gentle Frog, but hasn’t decided yet what services this business will provide.
When she’s not busy supporting professionals and their businesses, Rachel enjoys actively participating in the QuickSource accounting community. She has also hosted a number of SCORE workshops, where she enjoys connecting with and educating other professionals.
