 I think it’s really important that Merrilee works so closely and with other cooperative spaces in Portland. She really understands our specific needs and also the Maine culture. Dawn has always approached our business as more than just numbers and stats, but in a way that has been kind and understanding and innovative to match the creative needs of our very creative and unique business.

Benay not only handles my books as bookkeepers, but they also are consultants and confidants. They handle my accounts payable and receivable and they’ve made my life as a business owner incredibly easy.
