Darlena Slate has a Bachelors in Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering, in addition to an MBA with a concentration in Finance and a minor in New Ventures and Business Development from Indiana University. Prior to opening Clean Slate Bookkeeping, she worked in the automotive and financial services industries as a Six Sigma Black Belt focusing on statistical data analysis, process improvement, and client satisfaction.

Darlena’s education, corporate background, and personal intention to one day work for herself, led her to complete the QuickBooks ProAdvisor certification. Upon receiving the certification, she quickly realized that many businesses and start-ups needed an expert to help them set up and maintain an accurate, efficient, and manageable financial reporting system.

Darlena’s client base includes small companies in the product and service industries with sales up to $500,000. With excellent technological, analytical and communication skills, she pays acute attention to detail and has a strong commitment to client satisfaction. Her motto is… “Let me handle all the techie, numbers stuff while you focus on your passion, and ultimately, the success of your business.”

Outside of bookkeeping, Darlena expresses a unique creativity through her passion for sewing  and making clothing for children and women. She is married to her college sweetheart, and they are the proud parents of four children.
