About Me

"My mission is to provide every client with affordable, efficient and prompt bookkeeping and/or payroll services. I am dedicated to providing my customers with customized services to meet their particular needs. I care about your business and your finances."
-Cherokee Laws

Every Penny Counts LLC was started in April 2007, with 37 years of experience working in all areas of accounting and payroll. Starting as an Accounts Receivable clerk in 1970 at a poultry company in Iowa (before computers), I continued my on-the-job experience to become a full-charge bookkeeper. Over the years I have become proficient in Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Invoicing, Payroll, General Journal Entry and sales tax reporting for California and Washington.

I have taken accounting classes at Portland Community College and The University of Phoenix. It was my intention to become a CPA but soon realized I really love being a bookkeeper and am quite happy to let the CPA's do the tax work, auditing and other jobs that require a degree. I have always had a love of numbers and bookkeeping is what I do best.
I have been using QuickBooks for many years and became a QuickBooks Pro Advisor in 2008.

My clients say.....

"I've had an opportunity to work with Cherokee Laws at my business for about a year now. She is very observant, tax preparation is very good and QuickBooks.
I would consider her an asset and appreciate her skills and personality."

"Cherokee Laws has saved me time,
money, and major headache. I recommend
her and Every Penny Counts to all the small
business people I know because her
efficiency, her attention to detail, and
her extensive financial and bookkeeping
knowledge helped me get my business off
the ground, and to help it grow over the years.
In addition, Cherokee has a warm and
professional style -- she helps make the
often frustrating and confusing aspects of
running a small business truly pain-free
and easy. I would highly recommend
Every Penny Counts to anyone!"
