Patricia Lavagnino

Patty is the Founder and President of ND Business Solutions.

Patty’s career in accounting began immediately after her graduation from high school. 

At 18, she started as an accounting clerk and worked her way up to managing a local accounting office. Though she was relatively young, her attention to detail, the accuracy of her work, and her willingness to learn served her well in this leadership role.

A few years later, Patty was approached by a small business owner requesting assistance in setting up their accounting processes. Patty thought it would be exciting to help a new business and agreed. A few months later another small business owner approached her, followed quickly by another. And another.

Eventually, Patty chose to start her own bookkeeping company focused on helping small businesses. PAL’s Bookkeeping and Tax Services was born.

Based in Citrus Heights, California, PAL’s continued to grow from one woman helping small businesses with their bookkeeping into a full-service tax preparation and planning, accounting and business solutions company. At its peak, PAL’s employeed 9 staff members, and serviced a broad range of clients in diverse industries throughout northern California.

In September 2018, Patty and her husband, Earl, relocated PAL’s to Idaho Falls, Idaho where it transitioned into ND Business Solutions.
