Life is like accounting, everything must balance!

Meet Sterling Bookkeeping

Karen Cummins (Owner/Founder)

My name is Karen Cummins and I am the founder of Sterling Bookkeeping, LLC. I have over 30 years of bookkeeping and accounting experience with a BBA in Accounting from Delta State University. I help businesses manage their finances by handling bookkeeping tasks so they have time to focus on the growth of their business. I look forward to servicing the bookkeeping needs of your small business.

We know choosing the right team to work with is important. Unlike many larger firms where they don’t know your name, we get to know you and your personal or business needs.

Our passion and goals are to take the back end work off of the business owner. We can replace your back office with accounting, bookkeeping and administrative support. That will give you less stress, less confusion, more time, and more freedom!

Our goal is to let you focus on the day to day while we focus on the bookkeeping. By allowing us to do that, it will allow you to grow and focus on other areas. We work with you on a personal level to help guide and achieve the best possible results for your business.



We are a full service virtual bookkeeping company. We can set up your bookkeeping from scratch, clean up messy books, or maintain monthly bookkeeping. We stay up-to-date on all the regulatory and legislative developments so you don't waste time and energy trying to make sense of all of the accounting complexities.
