About Us


 Dee Mitchell established Checks & Balances Business Service in 2008. 


 Dee recognized the need in the small business community for professional bookkeeping services at affordable rates. 

Checks & Balances Business Service has been helping small businesses succeed since 2008. In addition to bookkeeping and accounting services, we offer organizational and administrative consulting. We will work closely with your accountant and attorney to organize the financial aspects of your business.                   


With an extensive background in accounting, partnered with excellent client relation skills; Dee considers it an honor for the opportunity to work with each of her clients! As a fellow small business owner, we understand the inherent tension between building the business, servicing clients and keeping an eye on the bottom line.


Dee has a B.S. in Business Management/Accounting

             from Westbrook College (now University of New England), is a Quick books Pro Advisor and Notary Public for the State of Maine.
