Brittany Turner, CPA
Founder, Accounting Addict, Cat Wrangler
Brittany is the proud mom of this brain child and our fearless-with-a-capital-F leader. Though originally from sunny Florida, she always knew in her heart of hearts that New York was home and made the move in 2011 after earning her BBA in Accounting from Florida Atlantic University. Upon her arrival to the city, she was accepted into Pace University’s graduate program where she completed her MS in Taxation. It was in the midst of an upwardly-mobile accounting career that she started noticing fewer and fewer of her colleagues were women, much less women with family lives. Brittany knew she wanted a work-life balance and that if she wasn’t finding it working for someone else, she’d create it working for herself. What’s more, she wanted to give that opportunity to others in the accounting world. And, well, here we are! She and her husband are proud parents to three feline rescues (one of which is a polydactyl with seven toes on each of its front paws) and enjoy weekend foodie trips around the tri-state area.
“I legitimately love accounting – there’s something soothing about putting everything in its right place.”
Bookkeeping Superstar, Ambidextrous Brain
Megan grew up in the Snowy Mountains of Southern California. She’s studied Economics, Creative Writing, and Fashion Design. Coming from a varied background – working with both Fortune 500’s as well as small businesses – it was only when she had her daughter, Leia, she realized her passion for entrepreneurship. Megan spends most of her time running her own business, AppleSeed Services, which provides copywriting, marketing, and virtual assistance – and gets her numbers fix with Countless to keep her left-brain and right-brain balanced. Bookkeeping is her zen. When she isn’t writing and reconciling (read: crushing it), she’s going on adventures in the California mountains with her family and friends.
ACCOUNTANT, KEEPER OF RULES (AND CATS)
Stephanie grew up in the Bay Area. After finishing an undergraduate degree in Sociology, she moved to New York with the dream of never having to drive a car again. It was a happy accident that she fell into bookkeeping and discovered that accounting isn’t just sitting around and doing math, but that it’s about organization, standardization, and rules – which she freaking loves! She was hooked and dove into the profession and has never looked back. Prior to Countless, Stephanie has held accounting positions for companies in several industries including hospitality, consumer goods, and the non-profit sector. When she isn’t organizing and following rules she enjoys trying new restaurants and playing with her calico cat, Lea.
Christy Wilson, CTP
Cash Counter, Beach Lover
Christy was born in the deep south but moved to the deserts of Arizona during her high school years (she still says y’all). Christy graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Marketing. Her love for accounting blossomed while working as a marketing analyst for a high tech company in Phoenix. From there, she moved to sunny Florida and married into the nomadic life as a military wife. After earning her Masters of Accountancy at the University of West Florida, she’s broadened her accounting knowledge in hospitality, oil & gas, non-profit, and real-estate. When she’s not counting cash, she’s busy counting her 3 kids, husband, and spunky Jack Russell terrier around the D.C suburbs of Northern Virginia. Where she will live next is anyone’s guess, as a proud Coast Guard wife she’s certain it’ll be near the beach!
