“As a cannabis accounting pro, Monique is an exceptional partner for East Coast Cannabis. Before we hired Accounting for Green, I spent countless hours trying to manage our books and navigate cannabis regulations. And I wish we had brought her team in earlier. Their insight and guidance keep us organized and better financially managed, and they have valuable cannabis tax and business knowledge in addition to their great bookkeeping services. I highly recommend their services.”
