Small Business &
I’ve worked in accounting for more than 30 years, starting at Calvin College, my Alma Mater, in 1983. After spending 18 years there, I changed jobs to work at Stepping Stones Montessori School and began my master’s studies at Grand Valley State University. Shortly after earning my degree in 2007 I started working for Grand Rapids Public Schools in their human resources office. I started my own accounting company – Tim Berghuis, Accountant – as a part-time venture while I changed jobs to work at the West Michigan Environmental Action Council (WMEAC). In 2014, I finally realized my dream to become completely self-employed.
