About Us

The NYABC Story

As you may know, “bean counter” is the official nickname of those who work in the accounting profession—but there’s more to the story. Gagné Associates had a client that was deathly afraid of numbers and accounting. After two years of Bridgett finally getting her on board, she finally started working with us and she realized the power of accounting done right. The client had such a great experience with Bridgett and Jamie that she said, “You are “not your average bean counter.” The name stuck, became their calling card, and the Not Your Average Bean CounterTM boot camp was born.
