Thank you for visiting Sterling Bookkeeping!

Do you spend too much time trying to track your company’s finances, only to discover you don’t know where the money goes? Are you feeling buried under a mound of receipts and get anxious thinking about how much time its going to take to organize them for taxes? Or are you just tired of doing your own books and would rather be doing anything else?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it might be time to Hire a Bookkeeper!

Sterling Bookkeeping is a Full Charge Bookkeeping firm located in the North Seattle/Shoreline area. I serve a wide variety of industries and locations in Washington State. I have over 20 years of experience in the financial field and am also a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.  But most importantly, I am here to take the burden of your bookkeeping worries out of your hands so you can focus on what is really important; growing your business!

I perform a wide variety of services, and can takeover as much of the bookkeeping you need me to. Some clients prefer to do the data entry and just want me to reconcile their accounts, pay some bills and provide financial statements. Other clients have been doing their own books but don’t think they are accurate so are ready to hand them off to someone else. And a lot of my clients have me do a majority of their finance work because they have learned how valuable an organized and knowledgeable bookkeeper truly is!


My name is Jessy Tennancour and I am a Pacific Northwest Native, born and raised in Shoreline. I started my company Sterling Bookkeeping in 2014 after I had my 4th kid and decided I needed a more flexible work schedule. I began my career in finances as a teenager in the mid 90’s when I would help my dad with his company’s bookkeeping in between breaks from school. I continued to do his books for Sterling Hardwood Floors up until he retired in 2018. During this time, I discovered that helping local businesses understand their finances was what I wanted to do with my life. I have helped many clients over a wide variety of industries over the years, from Service based industries like real estate, dance instructors, and photographers; labor based industries such as construction companies, general contractors, auto body shops and architects; to more specialized fields like yoga, ballroom dancing, learning centers and more! I am confident in my abilities and take pride in the work I do for each of my clients. I strive to give each company my undivided attention as my goal is to make each client feel like they are my only one!

No matter what your business, sound finances start with accurate bookkeeping. Keeping track of daily transactions, however, can be a tedious, error-prone task that is often postponed in favor of more pressing matters. All financial statements arise from day to day bookkeeping and your ability to secure a loan or comply with tax laws may be compromised if your business records are incomplete. If you are finding it difficult to stay on top of your bookkeeping, I offer an affordable solution. I will precisely record all invoices, deposits, bank statements, credit card receipts, and other daily transactions in a clear, easy to understand format. I can also set up accounting software for your business that will facilitate entering and interpreting financial data. I work mainly with Quickbooks Online and am able to help transition if you are a current Desktop user, or keep using the software you are comfortable with. Let me help you keep your business on a firm financial footing with my cost-effective bookkeeping service.
