How We Started

Established in January 2019, Holly Penney founded Nova Ridge Bookkeeping with a vision of helping business owners create a work-life balance by providing professional, innovative bookkeeping services.

Named after the place where Holly grew up: Falkland Ridge, Nova Scotia. Nova Ridge Bookkeeping was the culmination of Holly’s passion and purpose. Nova Ridge Bookkeeping allows business owners to focus on their personal lives and other aspects of their business, while Nova Ridge takes care of keeping track of their financial affairs.

Ricardo Quesada joined the team in January 2021, creating the powerful, effective synergy that makes up Nova Ridge Bookkeeping today.

Nova Ridge Bookkeeping focuses to reframe and enrich the lives of a community of business owners, giving them some of their precious time back by taking over their bookkeeping.
