HJ Byroads CPA LLC was founded to help small businesses grow. Small businesses need high-quality financial management without expanding their teams. I earned an MBA from Seattle University, and I am a licensed CPA in Washington State. With a combination of education and 19 years of experience working with a small business, I have the know-how, the knowledge, and the tools to help your business thrive.
Each business is unique. My service is tailored specifically to the needs of your business. I will sit down with you to understand exactly what type of financial management will help you move toward your goals.
My mission is not only to provide my clients with exemplary accounting services but to also look for opportunities to help them grow.
I’d love to learn about you and your business. It is time to work smarter, not harder.


Professional, Knowledgeable, Personable.

“As a GM, I worked closely with Helena for several years at a successful, fast-growing, Seattle area service company (roughly 8-9 million in revenue during that time). She started with the company as Assistant Controller, then became Accounting and HR Manager. Doing her time in this role she oversaw significant projects: the shift from in-house payroll processing to a 3rd party payroll service, creation of a new set of books and QuickBooks upgrade, and a complete change of banking relationship. Helena handled all with a high degree of professionalism, discretion, and competence. She embraced new learning and sought new solutions in technology. Importantly, she provided management and ownership with timely support, as well as anticipating our needs and questions. Taking on the company’s administrative HR needs offered many new challenges and opportunities for growth. She took it all on, learned much and seemed to enjoy interacting with our employees on another level. She was trusted; and her attention to detail and calm demeanor were much appreciated by all.” — M. F. Seattle
