Who we are
Missi DeWitt // Kindred Services
Hi, I'm your accountant, Missi DeWitt. I am passionate about financials, and especially about making them accessible to everyone. When majoring in accounting at Portland State University several years ago, I had the privilege of taking my capstone course with PSU's Business Outreach Program. My team worked to jump start the financials and business plan for a local small business, and it was love at first sight. Once the project had completed I stayed on as an intern with the program, consulting with other clients until my graduation.
I have carried that love of working with people and communicating financial information into every job I've had since then. In addition to my regular accounting work, I have worked with people from all kinds of backgrounds providing basic financial training, financial analysis, and analyzing and improving processes. I also earned an MBA from Willamette University to further improve my capacity for big-picture thinking, analysis, and training.
My goal is that Kindred Business Services be a trusted partner for small businesses and nonprofit organizations, providing guidance on accounting and bookkeeping, solutions for tax planning and filing, and training and education.

Kindred began several years ago as a small spark in our hearts, a twinkle in our eyes - a desire to support new businesses and organizations with their financial health. We heard too many business owners confess a lack of confidence in their financial skills, frustration with their accounting software, and a general disconnect with their accountant. What a travesty!
We believe that financial records are the very bones of your organization - and that having a familiar and deep understanding of them is critical to charting your success. Our mission is to empower, educate, and enable small organizations to engage with their financial activity in a meaningful way. No financial experience required.
We are so excited to partner with you on your journey. After all, we're like you - passionate about what we do.
