It was this drive that led Joy to ebs Associates. She met the ebs Associates team at a two-day QuickBooks class taught by the CEO, Denise Loter-Koch. It was just a matter of time before Joy joined ebs Associates and found a place where she could continue her growth and education while working with a variety of clients. Joy is now a QuickBooks & QBO Advanced ProAdvisor, an Advanced Intuit Field Service Management ProAdvisor, as well as a Certified Advisor in several third party applications.
