Shannon Bean Scalise
Founder and Professional Bookkeeper
"I believe that modern entrepreneurs are crucially important to our local social ecosystem, to more equitable communities, and to climate stability. I created BSFG, a Public Benefit Company, in order to use my training and my systems, spreadsheet, numbers, and strategy oriented brain to support business owners to do what they do best! My clients receive top-notch professionalism, outstanding work, and knowledgeable guidance.
In my free time, I nerd-out to climate policy, soil health, carbon sequestration, farming, microscope work, radical collaboration, and food sovereignty. I spend my time volunteering with project focused working groups, travelling from forest to forest, and with my three dogs and husband.
It is my goal to seek out curious, kind, and mission focused colleagues, clients, collaborators, and friends. "

"Shannon made setting up the back end for our small urban farm very easy! Anytime I have a question, she sends me a recorded training video with step-by-step instructions to get me the answers I need. Very responsive. Highly recommend!
-Nicolas, Soil Health Consultant
"Shannon ran our customer experience department, covered for our operations manager when he was on vacation, and stepped in wherever and whenever she was needed. Customer experience was a key element in our successful service offering which positioned us well when we decided to sell the company. You can count on her to take initiative and manage the details."
-Melissa, Owner of B2B office services company
"Book See Financial has given my business the tools and support to focus on my growth and wellness of my real passion as a hairdresser. The visual tools and reports used explain clearly the direction of my salon in a way I comprehend. The freedom of knowing my finances are in capable hands is immeasurable. The personal attention to detail is beyond any other bookkeeping service available. Shannon is one of the major keys to my success. I could not recommend her more."
