NICE TO MEET YOU

I'M DAWN SCOTT

Founder of Gratiam Consulting and The Empowered CPA. Lover of gardening, sharing my creations from my kitchen and enjoying wine with friends.

With almost 15 years experience as a Certified Public Accountant, my passion is helping entrepreneurs run their businesses better. I love sharing information to ensure everyone has the knowledge they need to be successful, painting a picture of a business through numbers, and empowering others to be capable and confident business owners. I learned the ins and outs of a publicly traded company during my time at a now Berkshire Hathaway company. While pursuing my CPA license, I learned from incredible leaders the fine art of working with small businesses. I learned tax and forensic accounting, and the fine art of a checklist though auditing. I felt the thrill of being a part of opening a multibillion-dollar company from the ground up. All of this incredible experience led me back to the same place, I love what I do. Now, I’m on a mission to share that information and experience with even more people to ensure everyone has the information they need to be successful. 

"Already filed thanks to the best accountant on the planet (AKA - YOU ‚̧ԳŹ) thank you for always supporting my business by making sure I do everything right!!!! Appreciate you so much!!!"

- Liza R.

"AMAZING. Dawn makes finances simple, and even fun. I'm so impressed and so grateful."

- Ali T.

"Hands down THE BEST…excellent CPA, but there is so much more to Dawn and the person she is in addition to just the numbers. She brings the caring and human side to accounting!"
