Michelle Edwards, CPA

While working as a controller & a CFO for a fast growing real estate company, I became frustrated with the lack of day-to-day accounting knowledge our tax CPA was able to provide. They were awesome with preparing our taxes. However, they were unable to offer QuickBooks support, talk through cash flow strategy, and offer any level of guidance around the day-to-day accounting & bookkeeping operations of a small business. Not to mention it was impossible to reach them. I saw a gap in the market and decided to fill it. That’s when Trailhead Accounting Solutions CPA was formed.

I’m passionate about working with small business owners and entrepreneurs and love helping them understand their numbers. I enjoy pushing boundaries & creatively creating a virtual and flexible working environment for my team, while not sacrificing the stellar customer service our clients have grown to love.

I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Accounting and Tax. When I’m not crunching numbers I enjoy hiking, backcountry camping, paddle boarding, water skiing on the chilly Colorado lakes, walking our dogs, and hanging out with my family.

Detailed, peace of mind, and saves me money…

I operate an interior design business and have been working with Michelle since 2016. To say she is detail oriented would be an understatement. In my business, I pay sales tax in several states cities, and counties, each with their own payment schedules and deadlines. She and her team have never made a mistake. They are amazingly organized, meticulous, and save me money by being so on top of it. Having Trailhead Accounting on my team gives me such peace of mind! ”
