About The Owner
Sole proprietor Elisa Burchett began as a financial statement auditor at a CPA firm in Akron, Ohio. After working with many different companies, both large and small, for-profit and not-for-profit, Elisa became convinced of the need in the Akron and Cleveland area for experienced accountants who can work on a contracting basis.

Since small business are still growing they might not be ready to pay the cost of a qualified, experienced financial accountant; but they still need the same quality of reporting as a larger company. With Hazel Tree Accounting, small businesses can now afford to have the level of experience they need to grow their business, without the significant investment of a full time employee.
