Monica ShawMonica established Kendall Financial Services in 1988 as a home based business. She started out preparing financial statements, payroll and income taxes for a small group of business owners.

In 1999 she expanded her practice to include additional services of retirement planning and group health insurance benefits.

Monica is a natural advocate.

She is organized and detail oriented and especially likes working with people who embrace virtual records and systems. She enjoys the professional clients with whom she works and loves the opportunities for learning and growth that come with supporting a diverse range of clients.

In addition to her role at KFS, Monica leads an active lifestyle participating in the sport of Triathlon and coaching a local Special Olympics running team.
