About Us


Advantage Bookkeeping Professionals opened in August of 1999 as a home-based, mother and daughter team of Shirley Fancher and Barb Kerry. Many years, offices and papercuts later, Advantage continues to thrive as Naperville's go-to organization for small business bookkeeping needs.


As a previous small business owner and a degreed accountant, Shirley was able to use her experience and vast knowledge to help hundreds of small businesses over the years and turn Advantage into a successful operation. Shirley retired in July of 2012 but turned over the reins to her daughter, Barb, to continue the legacy. Also being a degreed accountant and a registered CPA, Barb brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to continue to help small businesses maximize their potential.


Our Team Approach

At Advantage, the client is never alone. While each client receives a dedicated account manager, that account manager also has the backing of an entire team of degreed and experienced accountants. It's like having an entire bookkeeping department, minus the cost!
