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.
Julie Fry is a mom of two, living in the Seattle, Washington area and couldn’t be happier running the mom-entreprenuer support organization, Business Among Moms.
After traveling extensively around the country and the world for previous employers in the Consumer Products Industry, she was burned out and looking for a way to spend more time with her kindergartner and preschooler.
She searched extensively for the right business opportunity, then learned about Business Among Moms and purchased the company from the founder. She now has over 25 active Local Chapters that offer educational and networking events for women in business.
