Houston & Associates is the brainchild of Chanelle Houston. While on maternity leave in 1998, she met a lot of people who needed help with their companies’ accounts, and started helping them on a part time basis. When the time came to go back to work Chanelle was out of a job as her company had closed down. Instead of looking for another job, Chanelle decided to take a plunge and open her own accounting and Finance company, and she has not looked back. Houston & Associates render services such as bookkeeping, accounting, personal and business tax just to name a few. Houston & Associates has grown to over 300 clients all through word of mouth. Chanelle has found pleasure in being a mom and being self-employed at the same time. She has not missed a meeting or any of her child’s school functions since starting her own company. Houston & Associates has five employees and continues to grow through word of mouth.
