ClearCloud Bookkeeping

Hi, my name is Karen Bertrand. I’m a bookkeeping professional with over 20 years of experience.

I launched ClearCloud Bookkeeping to take the headache of bookkeeping off the plate of small business owners. I want my clients to stay laser-focused on what they do best – running their business and making their own dream a reality – while ClearCloud ensures their books are accurate, reliable, and up-to-date.

I’m a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and always looking for the best technology to make clients’ lives run more smoothly.

I’m also the rare extrovert bookkeeper – I love people! This lends itself to great communication with clients and long-term working relationships.

Born and raised in the DC area, I absolutely love partnering with local businesses in the DMV. However, because I work virtually, I’m able to team up with businesses nationwide.

When I’m not busy putting a smile of relief on business owners’ faces, I enjoy family time with my husband, daughter and dog, Taco, as well as volunteer work in the Chinese community.

Reach out so I can show you how ClearCloud can relieve your bookkeeping headaches!

We take the headache of bookkeeping off your plate and make you more profitable.

I have had the privilege of working with Karen when we created a new enterprise. Our new endeavor was very successful, but like most new ventures, we focused on obtaining financing and sales.

Karen came to our rescue. After three months of transactions and over $4M in sales, we needed great assistance connecting all the dots. In addition, we were working on an export program which also was in need of Karen’s business acumen to create all of our accounting functions.

Karen, you are truly an instrumental part of our enterprise and I greatly admire your personable and professional style.
