Bookkeeping & Business Building Strategy Advisor

Hi, I’m Chenine, President and Founder of The Paper Trail Bookkeeping & Business Building Program. I have been in the Administrative, Finance and Business Management world for over four decades. I have worked for large Corporate and Government entities as well as small to medium sized businesses in varying capacities, ultimately starting up my own bookkeeping practice in the year 2000.

As I am also a business owner, I can relate to the ups and downs of starting up, maintaining and growing a business, but also planning for that ultimate exit strategy.

I have studied the “Art” of how to run a business effectively, where I have spent a lifetime educating myself on what businesses face on a daily basis and in the process have discovered new ways of running businesses.

I have helped hundreds of business owners and bookkeepers navigate the sometimes overwhelming expectations every business owner faces and to help them understand areas that they are either uneducated in or are not interested in spending the time on.

I can help business owners transition their business’s internal structures to be faster, more cost‐efficient and compliant. I work along side our clients to determine what we need to do to plan for what’s important right now but also planning for the future, identifying what are the business owner’s ultimate business and personal goals and what new systems and processes can we integrate to compliment their lifestyle, budget and vision.

It’s About Time

Paper Trail Bookkeeping - It's About Time!

“I started working with Chenine back in 2017 when I needed help in sorting out our bookkeeping. She was instrumental in organizing our business and implementing our use of Sage 50 to track our accounting. Throughout the process, Chenine went above and beyond by teaching me how to use Sage and has continued to support my learning over the years… I like the personal service I receive and have developed a great relationship with them. I highly recommend Paper Trail Bookkeeping.”
