At your disposal
Co-Founder and Partner
Passionate about building teams of people empowered to meet well understood goals and objectives, Melissa aims to leverage a team’s natural energy source to drive a company to new heights. Since moving to Nashville in 2011, she’s put her passion to the pavement serving as a financial, operational and general business adviser within a diverse array of entrepreneurial companies. In doing so, she draws upon her fifteen years of experience at The Walt Disney Company where she held various leadership positions in finance and operations. Melissa began her career as a Certified Public Accountant at Coopers & Lybrand LLP in Saint Louis, Missouri.
Inspired by great leaders, Melissa is motivated to pay it forward. She thoroughly enjoys meeting new people in new environments and learning about her clients’ industry specific business drivers and needs. Identifying improvements, efficiencies and creating clarity surrounding the workflow into and out of the accounting and reporting functions is her call to action.
Co-Founder and Partner
Kristen believes her four years as a business manager for athletes and entertainers was the ideal foundation for the work she does today as the requirement for client service in this arena is bar none. The experience provided her with the training and discipline necessary for keeping track of a lot of moving parts like no other. Having been responsible for all aspects of accounting and reporting for her book of business, and for the actions of her staff, she became well versed in the accounting needs of small businesses. Wanting to expand upon this knowledge and better leverage her Masters Degree in Finance, she joined forces with Melissa with the ambition of broadening her exposure beyond the entertainment industry.
Kristen has a passion for shedding light on the scary unknowns that keep business owners up at night and she most enjoys building models which synthesize the fruits of her accounting efforts into concise and well understood stories.

“The team at VITA is part of our Frothy Monkey family. Yes, VITA ensures a strong foundation of financial reporting and compliance, but the value lies in their passion for planning, operational efficiency, strategy, and problem-solving. To say that our company would not be the same without the involvement of VITA would be an understatement.”
