Through my Firm, Primetrics, I provide CFO consulting services to small and midsized companies. Clients engage Primetrics mainly to understand their financial business model and help transition to growth and gain a better understanding of the profit drivers at their company. They seek outside mentoring for their staff or need to support their team with accounting professionals. Sometimes the company is in transition and needs an experienced CPA to stabilize the accounting and finances of their business. Many times, we set up their first budget and forecasting process to help them see into the future.
I bring a background in technology implementation that few CPAs or CFOs possess. Automation and business process optimization are the tools I bring to every engagement. This skill set has allowed clients to scale their businesses where before it simply was not possible. We specialize in identifying and implementing the latest cloud-based applications to automate the accounting and financial operations of our clients. Doing so allows them to scale profitably and realize higher returns on the same volume of sales. Our work frees up internal resources to focus on innovation and customer satisfaction.

Brittany is an aspiring accountant who is motivated by the belief that the work that she does can help others. Staff Accountant by day and student by night, it’s exciting for her to see how her schooling and work benefit each other. She was first exposed to accounting by her mother and realized that she wanted to pursue it as a career while assisting the accounting department at a local real estate company where she developed a background in real estate transactions and financing. Before her work in real estate, she was an office manager for a physical rehabilitation services company where she prided herself in providing excellent customer service and enjoyed the complexity of medical billing. She later had the opportunity to train new staff, develop policies and procedures for the outpatient division, and was responsible for creating the department’s training reference manual.
Brittany spent her formative years in Salt Lake City, Utah where she fell in love with the Wasatch mountains, so it was natural for her to gravitate toward Mt. Hood upon moving to Oregon in 2012. She loves hiking, snowboarding, and running with her Doberman pinscher.
