    Hi! My name is Mary. I'm currently focusing on helping small and medium size enterprises set up their company into Xero. Either you have a new organization or simply want to migrate data from an existing accounting software, I'll be happy to offer my services. I will also do the bookkeeping after set up. I have 14 years experience in all facets of accounting work. I know Peachtree, Quickbooks online and Xero. I was also a customer service and sales staff and a virtual assistant. As an accountant, my most recent employer let me handle a wide range of accounting tasks. Every day, I did the bank rec, sent out invoices to customers, monitored bills and paid suppliers online through Comm Biz. I did fortnightly payrolls, superannuation payments and remittances to the ATO (Australian Taxation Office). Having experience as an administrative officer, I pride myself of having a good command of business English. I wrote many types of business letters, company policies, contracts, and company procedures. I also love organizing. I find it very liberating to use web apps for managing online work. These include Salesforce, Asana, Zoho, Time Doctor, and the entire list of Google apps for business. I am very fortunate to have had very fun people to work with. As you may observe from my feed backs, I had very good relationships with my clients. Thank you so much for taking time to check out my profile and I’m looking forward to working with you. Have a nice day.  less

    My life revolves around writing and organizing articles, essays, plays, books, short stories, editorials, and requires no small amount of luck and shameless advertising. While I know my way around a computer, and many consider me to be a social media and technology expert (sometimes better known as Cassie-the-hacker), my main job is to work with pictures, words, videos, music, and media. I have been a hired freelance writer on several different websites since my sophomore year of high school, and I receive a steady amount of work from those opportunities. I am a Journalism major at New York University in New York City, originally from Howell, MI and a graduate from Howell High School. My dream is to become a investigative journalist and novelist in a big city that never sleeps (much like I don’t). You can find stories anywhere and everywhere you look. And that is, in essence, what I spend my time doing. I also write music and spend my free time helping with local theatrical productions. And, of course, occasionally stirring up controversy between my school administration and members of the community through my work (but what journalist worth a damn doesn’t do that?). On that note, please feel free to contact me with any questions. My professional website is viewable at hashtagcovermylife.wordpress.com -Cassie Bondie  less
