Founder & ceo of Verte Consulting, inc.

Kirsten Barrie is a Xero Certified Financial Advisor with over 12 years experience  (CFO, Accounting Manager).  Certified in a dozen+ of Xero's add-ons, she and her team are expertly able to integrate them with Xero. Initially worked in accounting in the 90's for a local Northwest SMB, while in art college in Portland, before having started her own website design company.  After many years, hanging that company on the shelf, she returned to accounting in 2005 retaining a variety of clients from inventory to service-based, discovering how business owners commonly were short-changed in their own financial area.  Upon discovering Xero when it arrived in the US, she saw how tech could bring accounting out of the dark ages and is excited for the future of this industry!
