Lauretta Finis is the brains behind your QuickBooks course. In April 2021 Lauretta was voted in the Insightful Accountant as being in the “Top 100 Pro-Advisors Globally”. This accolade was followed in October 2021 with the Insightful Accountant’s announcement of their official 2021 Pro-Advisors winners in Fort Worth Texas, where Lauretta was announced as “International ProAdvisor 2021”.
Lauretta’s career began in banking, back in the early 80s, in a country town in Victoria. After achieving early success, she then decided to move to Melbourne and climbed up the corporate ladder to become a manager for personal and business clients at one of Australia’s “Big 4” banks.
In 2002, Lauretta started her own Bookkeeping business. Along the way, she gained her diploma in Bookkeeping, became a qualified BAS Agent, and attained her Certificate in Training and Assessment. She then moved into a new space: Cloud software bookkeeping, in 2014, and was one of the first Intuit QuickBooks Pro-Advisors in Australia – then also becoming a trainer for Intuit Australia.
She loves training advisors on QuickBooks Online and is also known as one of today’s foremost QuickBooks experts; just google her name.
Lauretta is a member of two of the oldest bookkeeping industry bodies in Australia, the Australian Bookkeepers Network, and a Fellow member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers. She is also part of the Training and Writing Network (TWN) for Australia, where she has been involved with many projects and events, including running training sessions at QuickBooks Connect conferences, writing the first Australian training manuals, running Certification courses face to face, hosting bespoke training sessions, and working with Intuit employees with product testing.
