About Us


Our Story

As small business specialists, Andrews Tax Accounting & Bookkeeping is primed to help companies move from the first business plan sketched out on a napkin, to wrapping up all the details at the end of a business year. We can:

  • Set up your books correctly from the start – the best step you can take to ensure accuracy down the road
  • Reconcile all your accounts and track your expenses
  • Process your payroll – including filing and paying all your federal and state payroll taxes
  • Prepare, file, and pay your state and local revenue taxes
  • Create your financial statements and explain in plain language what they say about the current state – and future – of your company. These are statements you’ll use when you’re ready to go to the bank and get financing to expand your business!
  • Prepare your company’s year-end federal tax return – and your personal return as well

But we only provide you with the services you want. If you want to handle most of the day-to-day bookkeeping yourself, we’ll step in only when you want us to. We never charge you for or try to sell you something you don’t need.

We’re also dedicated to giving you the personal attention you need – coming up with money-saving strategies for taxes, keeping an eye on your bottom line, and helping you with new steps like hiring your first employees. And we know that small business owners have to wear a lot of hats, and sometimes backlogs and complicated accounting situations happen, along with feelings of stress and guilt! But you’d be surprised how fast and painless it can be for us to get you back on top of things.

What kind of studies and certifications does someone need to achieve in order to become a bookkeeper? Unfortunately, none! And too many small businesses have paid the price for someone else’s inexperience and ignorance. But our staff are all Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisors with degrees in accounting, and Jeri Andrews has the highest advanced certifications available for QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop, in addition to a master’s degree in accounting.

Our Team


Jeri Andrews

Senior Accountant, Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor

My name is Jeri Andrews. I have been the owner of Andrews Accounting since 2006. I have a masters in Accounting and Finance and am an advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor for both QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop.

In my years in business, I have seen many changes in the accounting industry, the biggest of which has been a shift to bookkeeping in the cloud. This has opened up opportunities for a more collaborative relationship between clients and their accountants with clients being able to be more involved in the process. It has put accountants who are keeping up with the technology shift into a stronger advisory role. It is super rewarding to meet with clients who tell me how relieved they feel to have somebody on their team who can keep an eye on the day-to-day activities and answer questions quickly to help workflow run smoothly.

In my spare time, I love hanging around with my husband, kids, and 6 grandchildren. You will see many examples of my grandchildren’s art in my office.

Our office is open and friendly and since moving to our home at Squalicum Harbor, many of my clients – some who have boats, or who walk the trail – drop in to see me and say hi. My clients have come to feel like extended family as I have watched their businesses grow, as well as, in many, cases their families!


Taryn Loveland

Second-in-Command Accountant, Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor

I’m Taryn Loveland. I arrived in Bellingham in 2011 to attend Western Washington University, and to my surprise, discovered an interest in accounting. After graduating with a BA in 2014, I went on to become the assistant manager at a franchise tax service office. I prepared returns, advised people, and enjoyed helping individuals and families. Eventually, I wanted to learn more about the ins and outs of taxes for businesses. That led me to work for a couple of small businesses but then I had an opportunity that would really broaden my experience…

I joined Andrews Tax Accounting in 2017. I truly enjoy working with a great variety of businesses and concentrating on the specific needs and goals of our clients. I’m lucky to be under the guidance of Jeri Andrews, who not only brings years of professional experience but a lot of laughter and enjoyment to our work. I love being a part of a team that takes pride in their work but knows how to let loose. When I’m not in the office, I love exploring the Puget Sound area and hanging out with my three kitties at home.


Les Campbell

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor, Notary Public

I’m Les Campbell, balancer of books, prince of payrolls and tamer of tax returns. After a career in print media and running my own business, I got inspired to go back to school and study accounting – still telling stories, but now with numbers. I started working with the inspirational Jeri Andrews at the end of 2014.

Folks who haven’t spent much time in our office might be surprised to find out that we laugh a lot. We have a relaxed atmosphere, but combine that with a dedication to detail and the rewarding feeling you get from helping clients succeed, you get a great working environment! Folks who spent time in our old office were mostly familiar with the back of my head. Now that we’re in more spacious offices on the waterfront, I get to see everyone’s smiling face.

In other hours, I keep myself busy writing, acting and directing in local theater and on the radio, plus playing music at different venues around Bellingham. I also dedicate myself to keeping a smile on the face of my highly significant other, as well as our dog.


Debra Schindler

Accountant, Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Hello all! My name is Debra Schindler. After raising and homeschooling my four amazing children I decided to pursue my own dreams of being an accountant. I am a number-lover by nature and have found accounting to be a great avenue to immerse myself in math. My wonderful husband has been a great cheerleader as I have juggled school and home life demands. We live in the county on 1 acre with our dog, Cody, and cat, Bella. I have lived in Whatcom County for nearly all my life and have loved exploring the beauty of the area. Our family loves to hunt, camp, hike and have recently discovered a love for kayaking in the area’s beautiful waterways.

In my spare time, I am an avid reader and genealogist. You will often find me in my kitchen baking great desserts or canning from my garden. I love spending time with my kids and their spouses playing board games and having fun laughing as we recite movie quotes.

As part of Jeri’s staff at Andrews Tax Accounting, I have found the great support and enthusiasm, not only from the Andrews team but also from the clientele we have, to be something I can thrive in. At Andrews, I have found an amazing staff dedicated to providing excellent accounting services that go beyond simply balancing books. We want all to succeed and will do whatever we can to help our clients. I am thrilled to add my personality and skills to this remarkable business.

Diedra Ellis

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor

My name is Diedra Ellis and I am happy to be part of the Andrews Tax Accounting team. After a lengthy career in the e-commerce supply chain, I decided to change gears and pursue my Accounting Degree. After a lot of hard work I graduated from Whatcom Community College in 2019 with my Associates in Accounting. I come from a family of hard-working farmers and I am no exception. I feel blessed to work with such a great team at Andrews Tax Accounting who always strive for excellence and enjoy continually learning from one another.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time at home. I love working in the yard gardening, taking walks, and enjoy spending time with my family. With me in the picture is my “dog brother” Tim. He has been an addition to my family since 2008 and is the most spoiled of my siblings.


Cat LeCocq

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Hello, my name is Catherine LeCocq, and I prefer to go by Cat. I was born and raised in the beautiful PNW. I was raised in a small business and have always had a love for numbers. I decided to put my love of numbers and small businesses together and become and accountant. I graduated from Whatcom Community College with my associates degree in 2022. I am blessed to have one amazing daughter, four cats and three dogs.


Kela TenEyck

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Hi, I’m Kela TenEyck, one of the newest additions to Andrews Tax Accounting! If you had asked me about my professional goals as a child, I would have never imagined I would end up with a career in accounting. Honestly accounting probably wouldn’t have even crossed my mind as an option, but after getting hurt at a prior job and spending nearly two years working light-duty as an accountant’s assistant, one could say I accidentally found my passion (pun definitely intended). That newfound passion, combined with a desire to work with small businesses and amazing coworkers, is what led me to Andrews Tax Accounting. When I applied, I wasn’t looking for a job, but after seeing the adorable bios and blog posts I knew Andrews was exactly the type of place I wanted to spend my career. I couldn’t have been more right!

In addition to finding a passion for accounting, I also found a love for Bellingham after moving here in 2018. I was born and raised on Kauai, Hawaii, and I’ve found Bellingham offers so much of what I love about my hometown but in its own unique, evergreen flavor. That said I’m not a terribly outdoorsy person, so when I’m not in the office I can usually be found in my own office playing video games or playing with my cats, Chestnut (right) and Teak (left).


Emma Fitzpatrick

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor

I am Emma Fitzpatrick, and I am very excited to be working at Andrews Accounting. After nearly ten years of working in customer service at various Bellingham businesses, I decided to return to school at Whatcom Community College in 2021. I recently graduated with two associate degrees in accounting and finance and am excited to apply my new knowledge with the guidance of all the wonderful people at Andrews.

When I am not at the office (and it happens to be sunny outside,) I love being out paddleboarding on nearby lakes. I am also an enthusiastic homebody, and spend much of my time drawing portraits, building cute miniature houses, and reading high fantasy novels with my roommate’s cat, Cheddar.


Erik Ibarra

Accountant, QuickBooks ProAdvisor

Hi everyone! My name is Erik Ibarra and here I am with my lovely dog Minnie. She is a 7 year old Pitbull and bullmastiff mix that loves to convince everyone that it’s always time for more treats.

As for me, I am a recent Whatcom Community College graduate, now starting my new and exciting role with Andrews accounting.

I have previously worked as an aerospace quality inspector and anticipate applying my skills to the accuracy and benefit of our client’s books. It’s exciting to think I have an opportunity to learn more from Jeri and the good folks here at Andrews who have all been so helpful. Similarly, I look forward to helping all who come through our doors and being a resource for the community.

As I learn more from the amazingly helpful team at Andrews, I look forward to getting to learn more about you and your tax and accounting needs!


Emily Andrews (Emy)


I’m the receptionist here at Andrews Tax Accounting. What do I know about figures? Plenty – I figure I’ll be your best friend within two minutes of you coming into our office! My hobbies are asking for pets, getting pets, and reminding you I need to be petted. If you come in anxious, I guarantee I’ll soothe your nerves and make you feel better about taxes and the future of your finances! That is if you pet me. Trust me, it works!


Zuzu Campbell


I am a livestock guardian dog by breeding, and a doorbell by trade. I wasn’t given a flock to look out for, but I have a bunch of accountants to keep an eye on. Pretty much the same thing, but the accountants are slightly less messy. I will announce your presence to the entire office loud and clear. In fact, I’ll announce you to the offices on either side of us, too. My hobbies are snoozing, being shy around strangers, and trying to keep Emy from stealing my treats.
