When it’s time to think about the number side of your business, you get a pit in your stomach and avoid it as long as possible. You’re constantly in fear that the IRS is going to come knocking on your door and you just feel so overwhelmed with taxes and bookkeeping that you aren’t sure where to start.

That’s where I come in

Hi, my name is Amy Northard and I’m the CPA for creatives. I help creatives like you all over the US navigate taxes and set up bookkeeping systems so they can get back to the part of business they love – the creative part.

How it all began

After graduating with a Bachelor in Science in Accounting from the Kelley School of Business of Indiana University, I started working at a small firm where I had the opportunity to do tax and bookkeeping for all kinds of clients, small and large.

Before and after work, on lunch breaks, and weekends I studied for my CPA exams. Once I had passed them all and was officially a CPA, I finally had time and brainpower to start dreaming about how I could get out of the cubicle life and have a career that made me excited for Mondays instead of dreading them.

These dreams became a reality when, with the support of my husband and family, I quit my job at the CPA firm and began my own firm. Now I get to work with clients who inspire me daily.

When I’m not helping clients with taxes and bookkeeping, you can find me taste-testing craft beers (confession: not much of a wine person), on a run with my goldendoodle pup Lilly or planning my dream log cabin with my husband.
