About Us

Rachel Smith, CPA

Rachel Smith, CPA

Hi, my name is Rachel Smith.  I am a Certified Public Accountant with the heart of a small business owner.  I grew up in Pocatello, Idaho and received my BA from the University of Chicago, where I studied humanities.

I came to accounting through a side door.  Starting in 2006, I operated a small organic veggie farm in Chelan, Washington.  This is where I cut my teeth on business ownership.  I discovered that the part of the work that I really love is the business systems, planning, and management.  While running the farm, I also took over the lease for Sunshine Farm Market, learning more about retail management, sales and marketing, and leading a team.  I returned to school in 2013, earned a Graduate Certificate in Accounting, and earned my CPA.

I worked as an in-house accountant for several local wineries and orchards before starting Books on Point in 2017.

I have 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 cycling, gardening, and studying violin and piano with my two daughters.

I recently moved to East Wenatchee with my family, but my heart is still in Lake Chelan.

 

 

Rebecca Airmet

Rebecca Airmet (my older sister!) has been a bookkeeper for Books on Point since February 2020.  After over twenty years in the editing business, she decided to try her hand at numbers and found she really enjoyed it. Her experience managing the monthly project cycle of an academic research journal and her experience as a self-employed editor has carried over well to bookkeeping.  In editing, every word needs to be right; in bookkeeping, every number needs to be right.

Rebecca holds an honors BA in English from the University of Utah, is a certified HubDoc Expert, and is working on her Quickbooks Pro Advisor Certification. She is active in her local community, serving on the Capital Improvement Budget committee for the city of Saint Paul, Minnesota, which she now calls home.

Rebecca works remotely from St. Paul, where she spends her down-time knitting, spinning yarn, or riding her bicycle.
