Veronica Herrera

 

Veronica Herrera is founder and owner of Summit Bookkeeping which serves the bookkeeping and QuickBooks needs of small and mid-sized businesses in West Los Angeles, California. She has a knack for helping her clients lower their taxes, increase their profits, and manage their cash flow better.

Some of the recent accomplishments Veronica has helped clients with include correcting a $30,000 invoicing error that would have increased the client’s taxes if not caught, saving a client $5,000 in workers compensation fees that were double-paid through payroll deductions and insurance payments, and implementing a credit policy for a consulting client which improved cash flow. She has also saved a retail client a nasty payroll poster fine and helped another client cut back on expenses.

A QuickBooks expert, Veronica’s certifications include:

  • Advanced Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor
  • Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor
  • Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Veronica serves clients in all industries, including professional and personal service, construction, retail, restaurant, real estate, landscaping and lawn care, nonprofit, manufacturing, distribution, and many more. She is a member of the American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers, the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, and LeTip. She served as treasurer of a nonprofit organization in the health care field.

Prior to founding her own firm in 2007, Veronica worked as a bookkeeper for an investment banking firm and a nonprofit law firm and has sales experience in the telecommunications industry. Veronica earned her degree in accounting and political science from Santa Monica College. When she is not working, she enjoys going to movies and theater, reading presidential biographies (is a huge history buff), and walking her dog.
