I’m Meka West: The Penny Smart Girl®. I’m an accountant, personal finance expert and small business consultant. My passion is all things finance. More specifically, bringing calm to my client’s financial chaos. I’m here to help you overcome your fears so that you can build the life you deserve.
I have a degree in Business Management and Accounting and hold a Certified Money Coach designation, as well as my designation as a Certified QuickBooks Pro Advisor. As a seasoned accounting professional, I specialize in virtual accounting for small business and startups, and in turn work with the leaders of these businesses to transform their relationships with money and bring more of it home.
I’m passionate about business, finance and accounting. Behind every business is a story of how it all began and the brave entrepreneur that made it happen. A strong financial foundation and a solid accounting system are the keys to any successful business. I treat my clients’ businesses as if they were my own. I celebrate every success and help them create a path that will ensure continued growth.
Management and Education Consultant
I have worked with Meka for several years and find her to be both delightful and professional. Meka has helped me to streamline my bookkeeping and she is adept at both teaching me how to do “the books” as well as providing that service herself. Hiring Meka has made my running my own consulting business easier and has offered me peace of mind.
Meka took the initiative to document our procedures in a clear and professional training guide, which has been a great asset to train other employees. Meka is very detail oriented.
Tameka is a forward-thinking, energetic force, both thoughtful and action oriented. She has impeccable integrity, which she applies to every project under her management. Tameka retains her ability to think at a strategic level, while addressing daily practical details of her work.
It was truly a pleasure to work with her as her mentor through School’s Out Washington, and now as a colleague!
