About Lisa McCarthy
Tell us about yourself and how you got started
My bookkeeping career began as a full-charge bookkeeper for a doctor in private practice. From there I spent many years in medical administrative positions at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston and UMass Hospital in Worcester when I relocated to Worcester many years ago. I started my nonprofit specific accounting career at the YWCA of Central Massachusetts. A former colleague from the YWCA gave me my first nonprofit bookkeeping engagement. From there word-of-mouth referrals of my services grew into more than a full-time job and I incorporated in 2016 and we are now a team of four.
What are your favorite resources
