A Star Is Born

With over 20 years working as a Certified Public Accountant, owner Dawn Regner realized that cookie-cutter accounting methods and high fees weren’t in the best interests of her small business clients.

Recognizing the need for a fresh approach, Dawn founded First Act Accounting to deliver value and efficiency to today’s cash- and time-strapped business owners, providing accounting services when and where they’re needed.
