Balance And Foster - Our Team

Gabriela Chetraru

Gabriela Chetraru

Gabriela is the founder of Balance & Foster, an independent accounting/bookkeeping and tax firm specializing in helping small and medium-sized corporations.

Gabriela knows numbers don’t lie, but they are so easy to misrepresent; it takes more than one perspective to look at them to understand and see the whole picture. Accounting is the language of practical business life, and Gabriela speaks accounting, fluently.
After working as a financial analyst for a reputable Mergers & Acquisition company, Gabriela realized the experience acquired in key legal, business, human resources, and financial issues could serve a bigger purpose if used in the one-on-one setting of a small accounting firm.

Gabriela holds a degree in Cost Estimating & Accounting and is Quickbooks Certified. She is a strategic thinker and creative problem solver.

Gabriela wants to change the way people view accountants. She chose to name her firm Balance & Foster as she genuinely aims to not only help you balance your books but foster genuine partnerships and relationships built on mutual trust and respect.
