Rachel Smith, CPA
Rachel is a Certified Public Accountant with the heart of a small business owner. After studying the great books at the University of Chicago, a stint fighting fires on a hotshot crew, and working on farms across the Northwest, she moved to Chelan, Washington to start her own organic veggie farm--and discovered that the part of the work she loved most was business systems, planning, and management.
She returned to school in 2013, earned a Graduate Certificate in Accounting and earned her CPA in 2019. She worked as an in-house accountant for several local wineries and orchards before starting Books on Point in 2016.
She has been an active member of the Chelan business community, volunteering over the years with the Historic Downtown Chelan Association, Bach Fest, Chelan Evening Farmers Market, and Chelan Earth Day. Other interests include reading, getting into the mountains, cycling, and studying violin with her daughters.
