About Pat Peterson
Pat Peterson is founder and owner of Builders Bookkeeper based in Milford, MA where she provides contractors with QuickBooks bookkeeping and consulting services as well as administrative workflow to manage their projects and their business. She has a knack for showing contractors how to go beyond using QuickBooks as a simple checkbook and get real job information that leads to better estimating, profits, and cash flow.
As a builder, you are a craftsman. You take many single elements of building material and create a masterpiece. You can see the physical building as it evolves from the ground up. In the same way, Pat is a craftsman of QuickBooks. She takes the specifics of how you operate your business and mold this flexible software into your company file, providing you with a finished product to rely on.
Pat frequently works with both small and mid-sized construction companies. Construction is one industry that needs a more complex QuickBooks setup than most bookkeepers know how to do. When a company is large enough to have a full time bookkeeper on staff, Pat works with the bookkeepers to fully utilize QuickBooks and correct any past mistakes. When a company is small, they can choose to outsource their bookkeeping to Pat.
As builders, you have taken what you’ve learned through education, from other masters of the trade and experience to offer outstanding quality. In the same way, Pat uses her ongoing education and certifications with over 19 years of experience to give you the tools to see your building masterpiece evolve in numbers. You can see the cost of each phase of construction and compare it to your estimate; it’s a house of numbers.
Pat is proficient in both accounting and technology and has several software certifications:
- Certified QuickBooks Desktop ProAdvisor
- Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor
- Certified QuickBooks Enterprise ProAdvisor
- Hubdoc Certified
- Certified Neat Advisor
She also works with QBox software.
Prior to starting Builders Bookkeeper, Pat worked for a decade as office manager to a high-end custom homebuilder managing multi-million dollar projects and a green construction startup. When Pat is not working, she spends time with her toddler grandson, creates custom stained glass and enjoys home remodeling projects, watches the Red Sox, or listens to country music. She is also active in her church.
