Claire Van Holland
Claire Van Holland is a 50% left brain, 50% right brain split. She is equally creative as she is analytical. She has an extensive career building financial projections, budgets & analyses for corporate media. In 2011, she and her husband, Aaron, co-founded a furniture & home goods business, M.F.E.O., out of a shared love for interiors and beautiful design. After learning the operational challenges of being a small business owner, she applied her corporate finance & operational expertise to help streamline M.F.E.O. It was from this that the idea for her second business, the CV Ledger, was born. Today, Claire works closely with other creatives & design-based business owners, managing their numbers through accounting, bookkeeping, and strategic consulting, helping them make more informed decisions using their analytics.
