“Serving children in need is at the heart of our ministry and we can’t do that effectively unless we’re good financial stewards. While we’ve always made every effort to stay up-to-date with accounting principles, having an expert come in to work with us and ensure we’re doing all we can is invaluable. Michelle has a knack for “translating” accounting into an approachable and helpful tool that allows us to stay abreast of our financial position at any given moment. Her expertise in non-profit finances has also helped us find ways to streamline daily accounting tasks. We can’t thank her enough for the difference she’s helped make in our ministry.”

"I have owned my own business for nearly 20 years now. In that time, we have contracted with various consultants to help with all aspects of operations. We hit the jackpot with Michelle Tracz. Attention to detail, outstanding communication, proportionate solutions and on-time execution--what more could you ask for? Well, for me, the most important thing is trust. When Michelle is on the job, I don't have to worry because I have the trust and confidence the job will be done right."

I greatly value her no-nonsense, can-do attitude, and her attention to detail and deadlines. To top it off, it is a pleasure to work with Michelle. I am fortunate to have her on my team!”

“Michelle managed our company’s accounting migration from Quickbooks to Netsuite’s cloud ERP this past year. She created a blueprint for the whole process, learned the new system, found an excellent technical consultant, and executed the plan without our team missing a beat. She combines thorough professionalism with approachability and tact. A great addition to our team!”

President, Equilibar, LLC
“As a contract controller for our fledgling nonprofit, Michelle has handled big-picture strategic challenges (like creating budgets and financial processes from scratch) and ground-level tasks (like bookkeeping) with equal expertise and attention. Her work is uniformly impeccable, and no matter what she’s doing, she keeps our organization’s specific (and ever changing) needs in mind. Michelle has also been a wonderful resource for us on a range of startup matters, offering sound, reasoned guidance on personnel, policies and procedures, board management, and more. She is a delight to have around. We’d hire her full-time if we could, but she loves consulting; our loss, everyone else’s gain.”
Executive Director, Montford Hall
“Michelle is amazing! She has a great mind that is able to identify and analyze issues quickly. She has the gift of being able to see the big picture and the details at the same time. Accounting and financial matters can be overwhelming for those of us who are “right brained”, but Michelle communicates in a way that is easy to understand. In addition to her great accounting skills, she is also a warm and caring person who is very easy to work with. She has helped us get the financial side of our business more organized and accurate. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
The Vesica Institute for Holistic Studies
"She has proven to be much more than an accountant; she goes above and beyond to provide operational guidance and best practices, as well as moral support. She has helped our board and staff not only understand complex financial statements, but also how to use these statements for management and clarifying each person's role in that management. Michelle is the most organized and knowledgeable consultant we have ever worked with and it's been a pleasure to have her as part of the team. Michelle's cares very much about the issues in our community and this is obvious in her dedication to her local nonprofits professionally and personally. And, on top of all this, she charges a very fair price for her level of expertise and her services."
"To say that Michelle and her team helped me successfully launch my business is an understatement! Michelle helped me understand the process of how to run a business, and then helped me set up my books. I admit, I really went to Quickbooks kicking and screaming, but now I love it! Michelle is a terrific teacher, filled with patience and a methodical approach to helping a client get on her feet. She is extremely smart and helped me problem solve several situations I just couldn’t figure out myself. I honestly can’t say enough good things about working with Michelle and her team!”

"Michelle Tracz and her crew have taken good care of our accounting needs. They are professional, informed, timely, and easy to work with. We feel that we are in good hands."
Odyssey Clay Works
"Michelle has been an incredible asset to our company. We are a nine-year old marketing and PR firm that started with one and has grown to a total of seven employees and two consistent sub-contractors. We had managed our accounting and bookkeeping internally with Quickbooks and then the usual year-end clean up with our Accountant for years. Once we hit half a million in revenues with multiple clients and projects to keep up with, it was time to recognize that we had grown up and needed ongoing, professional help. Michelle is that person. She functions as our on-call Controller and has helped us clean up years of sloppy "bookkeeping" from previous outside sources and internal well-meaning accounting management. This year, we look forward to our year end review and know that we are in much better hands and have a clear focus on what lies ahead. I highly recommend Michelle to any business owner who has long been hanging in the balance between "do it yourself" and "call in the professionals - Michelle is that professional and you'll regret it if you don't call her today."

Our business needs for a controller and consultant were a difficult match to find, especially for church accounting. After many interviews with other firms, consultants, and private CPAs, Michelle was recommended and we couldn't have found a better fit! We are so grateful for the hard work and dedication she has shown. Michelle goes out of her way to understand your system to help tailor fit accounting solutions to your organization's needs. She is patient and takes as much time as needed to ensure that the issues are addressed and that training is provided to continue success. Her mentoring and guidance has enabled us to continue to grow on our own, implementing the changes and improvements covered during our meetings. We'd highly recommend working with Michelle Tracz and her team as your partner in accounting.
