Hi, I'm Elizabeth Skibbe,
I am the owner of Acorn Accounting LLC, certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and Certified Xero Partner providing small business accounting services combined with proactive thinking and financial expertise. More than a bookkeeper (who have varying levels of education), I know the ins and outs of accounting technicalities and business modeling. As the owner of a smaller firm, I enjoy the opportunity to be more personable with my clients; however, I did not start as a small business owner.
My career began in Silicon Valley, after receiving my undergraduate degree from Purdue University (business management with focuses in finance, international business/economics, and German). While working full-time, I pursued an MBA at Santa Clara University, then spent several years in corporate finance departments in a variety of industries.
The Raleigh area drew my family here, I knew my next step was small business ownership. For the additional skills needed to work with clients, I acquired multiple certifications, constantly craving more complex projects. Knowing my business directly impacts individuals and their families inspires me; I’ve never looked back.
