Edmonton Bookkeeping Denise Headshot

Denise Mitra

My name is Denise Mitra. I was born and raised in Edmonton where I still live with my husband and daughter. I come to Always Bookkeeping with over 30 years of experience in the workforce. I have worked in a variety of different positions. I have worked in a laundry mat, worked in a concession booth at Fort Edmonton Park and have even worked as an EMT-A. The majority of my working career has been as administrative support. When I graduated high school, I started working as a receptionist at a busy neurology clinic. I worked for 12 years at a prominent tax law firm where I was an assistant to two partners and numerous associates, I provided payroll and payable services and I also was the office manager for some of those years.
In 2008 my husband and I adopted a baby girl and I was able to take some time off to stay at home with her. I was able to find various jobs that I could do from home and in 2012 I found myself working at a public accounting firm, Spurrell & Associates. I loved being able to work around my daughter’s schedule. I have learned so much through my experiences in the public accounting firm, not only have I become proficient in bookkeeping, but I also have the knowledge and understanding to read and interpret financial statements. I have become a Certified Advanced QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor. I have been able to advance from being an associate to a manager at the accounting firm.
As entrepreneurs ourselves, my partners and I started Always Bookkeeping to work alongside the accounting firm in order to help other small businesses succeed at growing their businesses. Industry Canada states that 15% of businesses fail in year 1, 30% fail by year 2 and 50% fail by year 5. At Always Bookkeeping we are always up to date to help change these odds. Most small business owners don’t understand their financial statements and don’t review them until they have to at their yearend. In some cases, major decisions have already been made that may not be the best for the business. At Always Bookkeeping, we feel that it is important for small business owners to know and understand their financial statements in order to make better business decisions. The owners of Always Bookkeeping are working hands on to make sure that our clients’ financial statements are up to date on a bi-weekly basis so that business owners can make informed decisions on a day to day basis. I am looking forward to seeing our business grow as we help your business grow too!
When I am not working at Always Bookkeeping or at Spurrell & Associates, I love to hang out with my husband and my daughter. I love swimming, reading, watching movies and being outside. I also am an active member in my church and have held many leadership positions there.
