Kathy McGowan - Founder

Kat McGowan

Consultant & Senior Bookkeeper, Founder

Restorative | Input | Responsibility | Developer | Belief

As the founder of Kaizen-Life Consulting Group, Kathy (Kat to her friends) is using her entrepreneurial spirit to help businesses run smoothly and efficiently. She started Kaizen-Life with the understanding that it would grow and change - and it has! Kaizen-Life has become something greater than she imagined it could be through the power of collaboration (one of her most-used words).

Kat has a BS in Business Administration from Northwest Nazarene University and brings over 15 years of experience in bookkeeping and process improvement to our clients. Her years of hands-on experience and her capacity for quick and focused thinking in working with policies and procedures ensure that each client receives custom-tailored service.
Kat eagerly pursues learning (seriously, you should see her bookshelf) to become familiar with the industry and challenges that each client faces with the ultimate goal of building strong client relationships.

Finally, her team agrees that she is the FUN piece of the Kaizen-Life team puzzle. Kat’s dynamic personality stands out in a world full of boring, nerdy bookkeepers (she’s still pretty nerdy, though), and her Developer strength shines through in her ability to see the potential of each person she comes into contact with - she leaves her teammates and clients feeling refreshed and confident to face any challenges ahead of them after every meeting.

Not to mention, she has all of these outstanding achievements while keeping up with her toddler! Superwoman? Maybe!

Abigail Alano

Consultant & Director of Operations

Competition | Strategic | Command | Deliberative | Adaptability

Abigail is a mother-of-two with a love for music, baking, and all things coffee (a requirement for a former barista). She has extensive experience in customer relations, is strategic and well-organized, and (most importantly) fits in perfectly with the growth-centered environment of Kaizen-Life.

Abigail was initially drawn to Kaizen-Life because she appreciates a workplace in which her voice is heard, and an environment that allows her to care for her children while working. She loves representing the values of Kaizen-Life in her role - just give us a call and she’ll tell you more! She now handles all of the operations side of the business, and is part of the consulting dynamic-duo!

Beyond Kaizen-Life (as if caring for two toddlers wasn’t enough), Abigail also spends a lot of time in the kitchen and dedicates her (rare) spare time to church events where she plays the piano. She is a gifted musician, and her sweet treats can curb any craving.

Jennifer Reyes

Chief Communications Officer

Positivity | Connectedness | Empathy | Responsibility | Intellection

If you're receiving our bookkeeping services, you will be in constant contact with Jennifer!

Jennifer is a mother, grandmother, and lover of all things outdoors and crafting! She now has only one high-schooler left in the house and is cherishing the time spent with her and her family!

After owning and running a successful barber shop business with her husband, she took interest in the bookkeeping side of things. Her husband hired Kaizen-Life to handle the books and Jennifer quickly fell in love with the company culture and wanted to join the team! She loves that the Kaizen-Life team is centered on growth while also making time for home life.

With her extensive experience and knowledge from running her own business, she is set out to help any client that comes her way, while also ensuring that she brightens their day with her radiant positivity. Her strengths and personality make her a pleasure to work with, whether you are on her team or one of her clients!

Faith Robson

Senior Bookkeeper

Belief - Responsibility- Developer - Harmony - Empathy

Faith is a mom, friend, & auntie to just about everyone she meets! She has over 20 years of experience in bookkeeping, customer service & is the perfect fit to the camaraderie of Kaizen-Life.

Faith was interested in working with the team at Kaizen-Life because it allows flexibility to work from anywhere (the beach, perhaps?). Another part of her role as the Senior Bookkeeper is getting to know her monthly bookkeeping clients. She loves to connect and create positive work experiences with her team and clients!When she’s not working on books, you can find Faith in her garden, spending time with her family, or traveling!

She is a joy to have on the team and is the perfect fit.
