The Journey of Sand Dollar Bookkeeping

Reflecting on the journey, Sand Dollar Bookkeeping began in March of 2019. The first decision was the name—Sand Dollar Bookkeeping—a playful nod to both money and the beautiful gulf coast of Florida. Shortly after, COVID-19 emerged, impacting clients nationwide. Just as recovery from the pandemic began, Hurricane Ian barreled down, bringing further challenges to local clients. Through it all, incredible resilience and growth have been witnessed.
