Pro Bono Bookkeeper

Kimberly Knapp

I am a mother of two children! I’ve been with my amazing husband for twelve long years! Family is the most important thing to me in my life! I started Sempli Bookkeeping after the birth of my daughter so that I could work from home and be with her throughout the day. I love what I do as a bookkeeper. I love working with numbers, because it is something that I am good at. But more than that, I love the people that I get to work with and meet along the way! I work with growing small businesses. I love the passion that they have for their business and what they are doing!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this amazing organization that you have created!
