Joy-Hemp-Web-240x300Joy Hemp has worked for over 30 years in the bookkeeping field. Her vast experience has given her a thorough knowledge of the needs and bookkeeping requirements in the operation of small to medium-sized businesses. Her communication skills and patience as a teacher has led her to specialize in software training for users of Intuit’s Quickbooks® and Construction Partner software.

Joy is friendly, professional, detail oriented and most importantly reliable. She knows what it takes to keep the books in order and has what it takes to teach you the software. And her bookkeeping enthusiasm doesn’t stop there. Over twenty years ago she founded the Peninsula Bookkeepers Association, a support and educational network for bookkeepers and enrolled agents.
