Mission

Helping you finally feel in control of your business

Many of my clients come to me feeling overwhelmed.  They're behind on their bookkeeping, spending too much time managing their businesses, and can't imagine taking on more work to continue growing their business.  I'm skilled in simplifying processes and sorting through messy systems to see the big picture and develop a plan for the future.

This passion for taking on difficult situations and coming out of them with a sense of clarity is how I came up with the name Turquant.  It combines the open communication and calmness of turquoise with the tenacity and determination of the elephant.  I'd love to put my passion to work helping you finally feel in control of your business.

 

Who am I

Melissa Leediker
Virtual Bookkeeping Professional

Originally from Illinois, I moved to North Carolina for college.  I attended and graduated from Methodist University with a degree in Accounting in 2009.  I began my career as an auditor for the U.S. Army.  During this time, I evaluated a variety of programs to identify areas the Army could reduce spending and become more efficient.  I developed expertise in military construction and financial management.  I also spent nearly two years overseas in Kuwait and Afghanistan supporting the efforts of our servicemen and women. After nearly 6 years with the Army, my husband and I decided to relocate to Texas to be closer to his family and prepare to start our family.

I continued my federal audit career working for an agency in downtown Fort Worth.  In this role, I traveled around the country reviewing contract terms and records to ensure the companies complied with federal contracting laws and maintained their suitability to continue serving the federal government.  After nearly 2 years, we realized the travel schedule wouldn't be conducive to raising kids the way we wanted.  I made the tough decision to step away from my federal auditing career to have time at home raising my daughter.  With more time to explore our local area, I began to become more invested in the local businesses and the community.  As I got to know more and more local business owners, I realized many struggled to keep up with bookkeeping and financial aspects of their businesses. 

I knew I had the expertise and ability to help.   That's when I decided to start my bookkeeping practice.  I absolutely love helping small business owners see ways to save time and money all while FINALLY feeling in control of their business.
