22 Feb The “WHO” of Rochon & Associates
At Rochon & Associates, we believe that you do business with people you know, like and trust. That’s why we are embarking on a five-part blog series so that you can get to know us a little bit better. Check back in once a month for the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHY of Rochon & Associates and learn how we can help your dental, medical and legal practice with all their bookkeeping needs.
TODAY WE WILL FOCUS ON THE WHO
If you had asked Erin Rochon what she thought she would be doing in her thirties when she was a teenager, she might have said, a job that involved working with children. After college, she worked in the field of Early Childhood Education. It’s clear that life had other things in store for the bright, motivated and down to earth Founder and CEO of Rochon & Associates.
Having run and sold a successful bookkeeping business over the last five years, Erin noticed there was a gap in the service offerings for the dental, medical and legal industries.
While many companies offered bookkeeping services to business owners, very few of them knew and understood the sophisticated software programs that most dental, medical and legal offices used for their bookkeeping.
With over fourteen years’ bookkeeping experience for dental and five years’ bookkeeping experience in legal, Erin realized she was uniquely qualified to fill this void with her practice specific knowledge.
Proficient in legal software, such as PC Law and Clio Practice Management and dental software such as Dentrix, Abeldent, Logitech, Tracker, and Orthodent, Erin specializes in working with small to medium-sized practice owners to ensure compliance and growth while also helping them maintain a great work-life balance.
Erin takes a pro-active approach to bookkeep and provide financial management for her clients.
Taking care of everything from, Expense and Income Tracking, Monthly Bank Reconciliations, Weekly Expense Reporting, Vendor/Supplier Cost Reviews, Income vs Expense Reviews, Expense Management, Accounts Payables, Accounts Receivables, HST Remittances, Payroll & Payroll Remittances, WSIB Submission, Trust Account Reconciliation, On-site and off-site services, Human Resource needs and more!
“We want to implement financially sound bookkeeping practices and procedures for businesses in the dental and legal industries so that they can curb financial issues before they become huge problems.”
PAST INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE
One of the first experiences Erin had working in dental was working on-site with a dentist at a small practice. He was overwhelmed by all the tasks he had to take on in addition to serving his patients. Erin successfully took on the bookkeeping, accounting, and office management within the company and implemented policies and procedures to increase high-profit work that ultimately helped him to grow his practice.
On the legal side of things, Erin has worked with various law firms within the Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area over the past five years. It became clear when dealing with her legal clients that too much time was being spent in-house on non-billable tasks, such as Trust Compliance, payables and client invoicing follow-ups. Erin wants to allow billable staff to focus their energy where it is best spent, on income producing tasks, by outsourcing their bookkeeping and saving her clients time and money.
Catering to family-oriented businesses, and as a mother herself, Erin enjoys working with companies that understand work-life balance and the needs of the modern family.
One of the reasons she originally started her business was so that she could have the flexibility she needed be there for her son. That is why she truly enjoys working with other companies who understand the importance of family.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, attending workshops and motivational seminars, reading, singing, and painting. She lives in the Durham Region of Ontario.
If you are spending more time working IN your practice than ON your practice and are ready to experience the growth you are looking for by getting your finances in order, book a free consultation with Erin and her team today!
