Quickbooks Instructor
Doug Walker, Finance and Administration Expert

Doug Walker teaches the “Small Business Accounting Using Quickbooks” series of classes. He has a passion for helping small businesses with their accounting and finance functions and he brings a wealth of experience to the classroom from his many years of working in the accounting and finance sector. Walker’s career includes being a financial executive for a mid-Atlantic group of Coca-Cola Bottling companies and CEO of a software development and business consulting firm serving international clients. He currently is on staff at Historic Christ Church as its Director of Finance and Administration. Walker started teaching the small business accounting classes back in 2013.

Though Quickbooks is a software solution to manual accounting practices, the principles of billing, payroll, and taxes remain fundamental to his instruction in the classroom. Walker believes that in order for small businesses to be successful, they must have sound accounting practices and the tools necessary to plan, monitor and react to actual performance. Several local area business employees have received this training and have returned to their respective companies to apply their improved knowledge and skill in small business accounting.
