Meet my accountant, Kate Presto!  She owns KIS Accounting (KIS stands for Keep it Simple). Kate has a CPA license, Master’s degree in Accounting, and Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.  Her goal is to help take some of the weight off of small business owners when managing their businesses.  With all of the extra behind-the-scenes work entrepreneurs are doing (I would know because I own my own business too!) she makes the tax part of it so much easier! Kate's motto is simple.  You run your business.  She'll handle your books. When I first met Kate and asked her about her career as an accountant and if it was what she imagined doing when she was younger and she told me she loved what she does.  Kate said that accounting to her is like putting together a giant puzzle, and she loves puzzles. She also loves that her job is rewarding because she gets to have a direct impact on her clients' businesses!

Most of her clients are small business owners and so she truly gets to build professional relationships with each and every one of them.  Kate is genuinely curious about what her clients do in their careers and she is passionate in helping them reach their goals.

One of my favorite things about having her as my business accountant is that our quarterly meetings are casual yet professional all wrapped into one.  We meet either at a coffee shop or generously (since I have a teeny-tot at home) she'll even meet at my home to go over books.  We have coffee, talk business, get down to work and I can bring her any questions I may have.  I can't name another accountant that I've ever had such an outstanding personal and business relationship with.

Kate enjoys to spend her free time traveling (most recently to Australia!), spending time with friends, crafting, gardening, and snuggling her oh-so-cool bengal cat Pookie.

Meet The Team: Christen {professional stylist, Make-Up By CG}

Hey guys!  I wan't to introduce to you another important member of my 'team'!  I put the word team in quotes because my make-up artists are not actually my employees, but when I hire them to come in a pamper my clients, we become a team as if we DO work for the same business. Please meet Christen Gundersen, a beautiful, and incredibly talented make-up artists, military spouse and the mother of three kids, two of which are teenage boys and one toddler girl!

Christen is a certified make-up artist and esthetician, who owns Makeup by CG, located in Southeastern CT.  She has earned over 15+ years of experience, on top of an education at Brio Cosmetology school, and completion of the Master program at The Val Garland School of Makeup. Christen specializes in photography makeup, and has extensive experience working with photographers, models, art directors, fashion designers and stylists in order to help her better understand the artistic demands of the industry.  Although photography makeup is her speciality, she can also effortlessly fulfill additional makeup needs such as bridal, prom/formal, headshot, commercial, advertising, film and even underwater!  Christen has also offered make-up lessons by request.

Christen LOVES what she does.  Specializing in photo shoots gives her the chance to see all the behind the scenes and to experience the masterpiece come together with a team.  She feels that it is incredibly rewarding to be able to watch a vision come together from start to finish.

Christen's hobbies include shopping, family time, dreaming-up creative set ideas and building her legacy. She loves 80's (rock) music, Halloween, comfy clothes and pumpkin spice. Christen admits that it's taken her a long time to find her true passions when it comes to her career, and in all the leg work, trials and errors she's gone through to get where she is, she humbly admits she wouldn't be there without the loving support of her husband and family.

Christen's favorite quote: "Well behaved women seldom make history." ~Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
