Welcome to Local Ledgers

Small business owners wear many hats...often far too many and for far too long. As hard as you try, or as stubborn as you are, you can’t be a jack of all trades. If you’re ready to be done struggling with the headache and hassle of doing your own books, you’ve come to the right place. We are problem solvers. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution, so we carefully evaluate each client’s needs to craft an approach that addresses their specific pain points. Local ledgers is more than just a virtual bookkeeping company for small businesses. We pride ourselves in embracing technology and creating automated solutions for our clients. Yes, we work for you, but we come alongside you as a partner committed to helping ensure your success. So...how about if you focus on what you’re great at and let us take care of the books. Deal?

Carrie Poppelaars

Founder, CEO

 

Carrie is  a champion for small businesses and deeply passionate about helping them succeed.

She owned an independent restaurant for 5 years, so she has walked more than a mile in your shoes. It taught her several things: always work hard to create a positive experience for your customers; focus on what you’re good at and let someone else do the rest; and  you learn as much from your mistakes as you do your successes!

She prides herself in offering services with the highest ethical standards. It doesn’t get a whole lot more personal than people’s finances. Without trust, integrity, and honesty...We would  not have a business. 

She was born and raised in Minnesota and  met her husband at the University of Minnesota (go Gophers). They moved to Sammamish, Washington in 1998 and raised their 4 kids here. She loves to golf, hike, cross country ski and visit lively main streets and small businesses all over the world.
